Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives #Potluck #Poetry – stripping by Frank Prem

A final stroll through my poetry archives by Sally Cronin at Smorgasbord Blog Magazine.

This time she has uncovered a poem that was written while I was, myself, in the act of uncovering. A thickly painted piece of magnificent Victorian Ash – a majestic tree, tall and straight hardwood.

This wood was acquired from a salvage yard after it had done service for many yeard=s as seating around the sides of a now demolished Council Swimming Pool.

I love this wood and used the occasion of its uncovering to create a poem in celebration.

Once again, I thank Sally for her support. SHe runs a brilliant blog and is a prolific and excellent writer in her own right.

Scootch across and take a look at this poem, but at the rest of her place as well. It’s a true smorgasbord, over there.

In June 2017, Frank posted a poem a day.. and so I have chosen the poems he posted on this day and then the subsequent poems that correspond to his posts here…
