O.K. here's a challenge. Write your Top Three memories ever!

What do they all have in common?


Rolling In Time



Roly-poling back through space

Pick a second, pick a place


Trophy bruises, kingdoms lost

Kid-stones gathering no moss


Spinning, bouncing, sideways roll

Stain your clothes and stain your soul


Giggle tick and whooping tock

Always chiming Now O' Clock


Melting moment vaporized

Vanishing before your eyes


Hundreds more line up to start

March to life inside your heart


Hours drag, a week's a year

Your address is, 'Happy Here.'


In the detail, in the blink

Rolling first before you think


Rolling hills you loved to climb

Roly-poling back in time

ghost children
wearing mummys clothes
tina gorjalina
the full stop day
home time
harriet half
becky bond
always picked last
a bag called me
he fights
rolling in time
