Gingerbread Weekend by Paul Point

That.
Listen
Did you hear that?
That sound
Did you hear it pass through?

A sound filled with
popcorn smiles
water bomb laughter
beanbag acrobatics
gingerbread weekends
melted marshmallow evenings

The next decade of our youth
has laid its stairway out before us,
so we can smile, laugh, somersault
half way from the nest we knew,
in search of sounds we can call
home once more.

 

Paul is a writer, reader and eater of chocolate whose work focuses on ‘re-storying’. He is a member of The Circle of Freeway Poets, hosts shows in Dorset and London and founded The Chocolate Poetry Club.
“Paul has an assured, clear and engaging voice. One to watch!” Vanessa Kisuule.
