Olivetti Moments


 

While doing nothing


in particular ..


It suddenly dawned on me


we may never get rich


while I try to write poetry ..


But no doubt


in time though,


the parallels between us


will become more apparent


to those who


dare visit, the few words


I did write here ..


And since most of them now


seem to hang out on Hydra ..


Whereas we


make out daily on the beaches


and the balconies


of cheap Algarve hotels ..


Where it seems on occasion


that miracles’


do still happen ..


Since without fail, when I close


my eyes lightly ..


Through the flicker and blue


and sun warmed terracotta ..


I can still see you clearly


almost wrapped


in a white towel, but loosely ..


Just sitting in front


of my old Olivetti ..


Loading black and white film


into the back of


a borrowed Box Brownie ..


Seemingly intent on


catching such moments as these ..

I used a word processor in the early eighties and now I have 200 page books to rewrite on word processor disk. I have a hard copy. My December problem. Last of my old things I wrote, needing a lot of edit. Hello Neville and thank you writing a amazing poetry.

Olivetti moments. I can remember learning to type on one of those Neville. Really had to depress the keys firmly and then slide the carriage back to start a new line. Loved the musicality of the typing. This piece has great visuals and takes the reader back in time. Early romance and early poetry all in the setting of the Algarve. It's a cold day today, but this poem actually gives me a warm feeling. Summer days and sun warmed terracotta does it for me. Enjoyed the read muchly. .
