Full Moon Not Since Ohio by pd Lyons as published in Boyne Berries #20

Thursday night I was at the Castle Arch Hotel in Trim. It was my honour to be included with over 30 poets, writers, artists in Boyne Writers Group twentieth issue. After listening to almost everyone else read I got up to deliver in my typical shaky fashion my  own piece. Thank you to Orla Fay editor and to the Boyne Writers Group for supporting my work by including it along side their own really cool stuff. Anyway here’s the piece and why not check them out on Facebook , in person or in print?


Full Moon Not Since Ohio

hey I know you.

how longs it been?

94-95 wasn’t it?

interstates all the way to morning

bright in my rear-view.

now all these years later

all these extra miles

not even the same continent

here you are again

exactly the same

not so about myself but

still driving

still late night

now all of a sudden you.

do you want something?

do you have something?

to tell me?

to ask me?

or like before

just hitching a ride for the fun of it

enjoying the miles

silent but for a smooth gasoline engine

not even the radio on




The Boyne Writers Group publish ‘Boyne Berries’, a journal of poetry and prose, twice a year in March and September. The group meet twice monthly in the Castle Arch Hotel in Trim, Co. Meath. The group was founded in 2006

    Love the reminiscence, PD, but can you recheck line 2, unless you intend to jar the reader. Keep well. e/s
