Six String and A Bonfire

A wonderful party on the beach is over
Memories drifts back to a distant time
Fresh,wild and free..no time controller
Eager to turn our life into a big rhyme

Bonfire,a six-string and electric vibes
The air filled..with dreams and hopes
Equality for all,not like seperate tribes
A hope that we all be treated like folks

Heart of Gold,Neil Young streams out
Another dude, a six-string on his back
Accustic tunes that`s what It was about
Peace..love,everything was right on track

As morning chase the beach party away
Everyday life comes fast as it always do
Maybe the setting was just another cliche
I belive alot from that era came through

    Our bodies age, I believe the spirit can retain its youth. If not I can live within this write!

    Lovely poem, Arild. Yes, i think that some of the peace and the love came through the 70's after all. Love the saying at the bottom. hugs, Catie :)

    a time when time was for the taking. when parents worked and we were faking. listening to music about our future. making babies and slowly awaking.
