Memory of a Child #poetry #parenting

But I smiled yes I smiled

at the thought of your little hand in mine

we walked on rugged terrain

lots of ups and downs and arounds

you grew yes you grew

I turned one full rotation

and your were grown yes on your own

so many memories trapped in my heart

questions of a child wove through my mind

like glistening ripples in colored water

and I smile yes I smile

merry go round ride

To each of you who have loved or parented a child this poem is for you. For without these smiling children our world would have little hope for a warm future.

i found one piece

colored in memories

touching my fingertips

*

i hear unstoppable giggles

colored in memories

and silly moments

*

 i grasp all that is left

colored in memories

touching my heart

*

i remember candy coated silliness

colored in memories

and boys…

Light Verse are whimsical poems  are represented in Limerick, non-sense poems and  Double Dactly.  (the above  is more a free verse)

This is a Limerick-

I met a strange man from Philly

Who everyone said was quite silly

he pulled up a dish, it was covered in fish

and pulled up a chair with fine Lily

There is no grief like the grief that does not speak

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again.

Wisely improve the present , it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear…

~Longfellow

Small Mountain Dawning #haiku #photography #carpediem

Over the hill’s crest

sun rays burst into day

between me and you

 

between me and you

all seasons fall away

springing forth anew

 

springing forth anew

patterns drawn pink and blue skies

pastel memories

Carpe Diem haiku prompt for today is Small Mountain. There are so many delightful prompts and people come join us in the land of haiku.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
