Timeless Dream

Falling asleep , I had a dream, a timeless dream
A wish for me to go wherever I wanted to
I said the sixties and I awoke to the sound of a Green Tambourine
There were messages in the music
With Dylan crying the times they are a changing
I felt alive again, I could change the world
Camelot in the Capitol ending in tragedy
An unpopular war escalated by big business,
Political turmoil, campus riots, a new movement
A new frontier, a lack of apathy, a sense of purpose
God! To be alive, to protest injustice, to effect change
A friendly invasion from across the sea
John, Paul, George and Ringo, James Bond
Psychedelic beauty with flowers in her hair
Peace, love, brotherhood, a time to sing.
Draft cards and bras burning in defiance
Laugh in, Love in, what a time to be alive.

    I remember it well. I was young and single and living In the heart of Vancouver. The world was a beautiful place. Thank you for bringing back those wonderful memories, Vince. Lainie

    What a time indeed! I rather missed the 60s, unfortunately - being born in '69 - but it sounded like a wonderful time to live. Beautiful poem, Vince

    I'll go back a bit further, Vince, to a time when damn near everything we promote these days was considered verboten, when there was at least a smidgeon of simplicity embraced. Love, daver

    It's a beautiful sketch of those wonderful moments which always reminds us what we have lost and what we have gained. But things now days are changing very fast. I do not know how many of this generation would recollect the good time they have lost as the shape of future is likely to be very different. Thanks for your kind comments on my new Poem and sorry for the delay in replying. Love and best wishes..Ravindra...Vince. S Jr

    In life we are destined for change and we so advently seek affect. But, in the long run the more things' change the more they stay the same. Then we seek to restore what has been lost. Things' shall never change. Stay the course and the turn around will come around! So play write and keep the write up, up! Your friend in the pen/G.FIELDS GOOD OBSERVATION ON FAITH1

    Hi Vince! A great poem -most enjoyable. Times gone by are of value today. Will someone say the same about today in future years? Perhaps yes, because time to come in all probability will still be worse. Regards. -Mohammad

    So very true, a time when anything seems possible, when Power to the People meant something, when folks were PROUD to have a SPINE and ashamed not to! Go Vince GO! Light & Love

    enjoyed this one Vince. Great take on it.Never thought of it that way looking back ... just enjoyed the status quo during it all. Thanks for that angle on the perspective.

    Vince, you seem to be almost doing that one contest but not using the form. A shame beauase this one is perfect for the 60's, but anyway, of couse it is great the way it is! I love how you mention all these things that I totally remember! The Green Tambourine. Good morning, Star Light. Even Sweet Pea. What memories!!

    I know the feeling. Those were times that can't ever be replicated for sheer excitement...while the beat went on! If only we could bring back the 60's when yes, we could dream. Unlike now when just thinking of Lady Gaga or Madonna or Britney Spears would make me have nightmares...even when wide awake! Keep writing and yes, keep reminiscing, old buddy from the navy Vince. Regards.

    Ah yes, the swinging '60s! I was a teenager back then, and I do remember some of it! Interesting look back on one of the defining decades of the last century (boy, that makes me sound--and feel-- old!). Interesting and entertaining piece.
