Glastonbury on a sunny day

The Pyramid Stage rises from the ground,

A jagged tooth protruding upwards,

Releasing golden stars in sparkly costumes

Skipping through the summer sunset haze.

The flags on poles as long as fishing rods

Wave in slow mo time, the breeze

Fluttering through them to the music beat,

And girls will sit on shoulders of

Their boyfriends as they sip from cans

Of beer warmed by the evening sun.

They’re all here for the music though;

To hear the classic tunes as stars look down

And fireworks fly into an inky sky

With key change times that bring that tears

To crowds lost in this hedonistic world.

    I know it’s awfully hot there, Rachel, but Glastonbury looks like so much fun! Outdoor music festivals can be wonderful if they’re well-planned and you have a good mix of performers. And, of course, there’s getting lost in the music…
