Picture Windows~

Solitude brings forth reflection
Windows shaded~now open wide
Joys and sorrows of a disconnected past return
Where once disassembled~i would hide;
Faces of the child that was always me
So long ago that time needs it's wings
To fly me back into the retro of my being
Where gloriously~each day~of my life sings;
Memories of golden moments~unwritten
The smells~the streets~the hands
Wrapped in such beauty~undeniable
Footprints of happiness in the sand;
Forever open doors to innocence most welcome
Never the tired~nor worn~in frame of mind
Only the unadulterated joys of children~free being
A mother~a father~cloaked in love divine;
Reflections being what they truly are
Yesterdays some wheres are nowhere to be this day
Tomorrow is just another day older
Dappled in the aging of muted grey;

Remembering my happy childhood
It's innocence and love
Was blessed with wonderful parents

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
