Poems by Brother Ollie: the Tired Monk
I so love this! Oh, those memories:)
Sharp, very sharp. Great take on prompt with flash memories.
I like the time shift dimension you got here...
Great write, Ollie. One of those moments when time completely loses itself in us.

Thanks for the poignant trip to the old neighborhood. Wonderful.
Whip me back in time......! Felt like parts of my own past. I still have dreams about my first home. Nicely done.
This is wonderful :-)
Nice, I like it. :-)
Nice one. enjoyed the pacy rhythm and sparse storytelling.
Christmas Island! You would know Roger Rosser and Jenny perhaps? Now Canberra Roger and Jenny.
Hey little hat!Is that roger rosser who used to be a teacher in the Solomon Islands?? I have been trying to locate him for years. I need to give him a copy of my first album. The man inspired me to sing and fall deeply in love with music and performing. And since then I have become a full time professional touring musician, played 15 festivals, released an EP and a full album, and hit number 1 in triple J unearthed roots charts for 3 different songs... the man inspired me, more than any teacher before or after him, to chase my dreams, and I need to thank him for that personally... but have NO idea how I can do that... My name is Karl Smith and I am an artist known as THE LYRICAL
nice and simple...liked it!
Some feelings are never lost..thankfully..you did a great write here!
...and so it is not the same at all, just a place holder to remind of what used to exist.*sigh*
It is funny how when you go back you have to see what was there and if it still exists and yet it never truly does.
Nice one OO. Everyone knows this feeling.
A wonderful trip down memory lane,
I grew up in a very small mid-western town ... your Magpie reminds me of how I feel when I return. It's a good feeling, bitter and sweet.
Thanks for helping with the development of Olsonomics.
