Hop Scotch - Poem by Heather Burns

Yesterday
we painted
hop scotch
on the sidewalk

Now it's painted
on the sidewalk
of my heart.

    To me it seems as a memory of an act of childhood, an innocent lovely game that could not be forgotten, due to some very special reason, may be due to a love affair initiated in those games or because the game is now played by one's children. Such likings have a deep root. (Report) Reply
