Inspired by V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #62: Child/Childhood
…ponder what it means to be a child.
To be a child…Part One.
Eyes first opened onto a world to explore.
To wonder. To question. To know.
Narrowed eyes gazed back…
I took my cue…
Slammed that screen door
And ran out.
Bright sun. Low clouds. Green grass. Climbing trees.
Raindrops soaking. Snow falling. Wind blowing.
Kite in flight.
Bicycle racing. Balls bouncing. Swings swinging.
Duck Duck Goose.
Hide and Seek. Ready-or-not-here-I-come.
Roller skates. Jungle Gym. Kiddie pool.
Slide. Sandbox. Snow forts.
Leaf piles…crunch crunch…jump…
Nourishment absent inside four walls.
My respite. My peace. My place.
Fueling many Part One days…
An endless horizon of hope.
