THE OCEAN OF THE CHILD MIND

THE  OCEAN   OF  THE   CHILD  MIND

Mirage of shimmering hot air 
Between the bus stop 
And the newsagent's shop
Above the tarred road there. 

Saltwell  Park lake shipped
Me out on voyages of mind-ocean; 
With swans moving to lake motion,
Not knowing  their feathers were  clipped.

With imagined snow-deep slopes,
Clouds immense rose like mountains,
Life’s  uncertain  curtains,
Above the factories for steel, tyres, and ropes. 

..................................................................................................

Note

....Saltwell  Park   was for long  the only park in Gateshead, England.
