Roath Festival

Out in the rain
over the park
sat under my beach umbrella
singing
Dylan, Donovan, Cohen, Beatles

Drop by
Take shelter
Join in

Today's theme islands

Yes, the train goes backwards
not through time
not strictly
but more related to liberty
physical
an excursion

The driver said
let it work through
don't be so hard on yourself

It's imported
doesn't belong here
but every spring
eternity comes back
whether outside or at home
whether parent or child
and you can feel the face of the clock
and move the hands forward or back
touch the flowers
