Fireblossom's Friday: Location, Location, Location

Wow, these seats remind me of an old movie theater!  It looks like the outdoors has moved in.    Fireblossom challenged us with a location poem. She asked us to make sure that the "where" of the poem is a vital part of it.



Tarnished silver screen
faded torn portal
 tumble weeds, ivy and wind strewn leaves blown in
stars not center stage
look up-
heavenly attractions wink
as life portrays art
stranger than fiction 
tickets to a dream, adventure, horror 
or another world
some moments
moon beams at High Noon
Main feature at dark  barn owl
joins you and the mice scurry n' scamper
when the rain cleanses your spirit 
The balcony isn't closed just not as Majestic
memory paints another view
You have to be Brave
 in
The Sound of Music can haunt or be like
remember

  7. I so love this. Makes me think of you growing up in the projection room of an old theatre, dreaming along with the stars. I remember,too, drive in movies in my teens and watching SOME of the movies, hee hee. I still love movies - an escape, time out of time, dreams, living vicariously - nothing like a good movie to satisfy all of those desires, and keep even jaded romantics believing, against all odds, in love.
