The needle has it

The needle has it

A Poem by Julie McCarthy (juliespenhere)
"

Played old lps last night at dusk and danced to the full moon

"
The scratches on vinyl
Reassuringly played
A hundredfold
The signatures on covers
So old
My youthful handwrite
Full of dreams
Of life yet so unlived
Unseen
Unspoken yet to have
In her future Dreams
If I could jump back in time
It’s to my favourite one
Of many favourites
I do reassure you
Song of mine
About time
To no end
Dejavu
By Crosby stills Nash and
Maybe Young too
So I’ll dance tonight
To moon over seaside view delight
On verandah I’ll stop to rest
sip my wine
And love this
Life
This night
Oh so very sublime
That feels so right
In my universe
Oh night sweet night
The world is ours tonight

i remember these times, used to wait 'til my parents went out and would play them on the living room stereo - one time a neighbor came over and asked me to turn it down. i like their songs' deja vu' and 'ohio'. thanks for the nice nostalgia trip julie. now i feel old but with music we're all well preserved. love your ending ... :)

Thanks Pete
Dancing outside at night by the sea side enjoying the moment free of care.

Love the feeling and the visuals in this poem. The imagery dances off the page with the narrator

The needle most definitely had it! How I miss those days of turntables and scratchy acoustics from speakers. I believe the LP has made a resurgence though, so everything old IS new, again!

I hear there's a blue moon tonight, so I shall raise my glass to you, there in Australia...and wish you a very happy spring!

Ps the verandah too small to dance
I used it to take in view over ocean to sit

Reminds me of being very under the weather dancing out on verandas at 4am in morning singing at top of my voice in my own world- never hurt nobody- great words taking us back in time🌹

Thank you xx
Happy Easter to you love your work
This is perfectly crafted to include everything I think & feel whenever I listen to "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young. I love the incredible details packed in every line. I love the way you seem to be inside my head and telling my young life story. Dancing & moonbeams & memories might be my favorite cocktail! *wink! wink!* This is nicely uninhibited to be like the tumbling way such memories appear (((HUGS))) fondly, Margie
