Innocent Perception Poem by Dominic Windram

Innocent Perception

Rating: 5.0


I recall fluffy,
Cotton clouds drifting by in
Inky blue skies;
Grass and trees were as green as
Emeralds. The sun
Always seemed to glow like a
Fiery, golden god.
Warm breezes whispered to me.
Days were timeless and
Flowed on like silvery streams.
Life was like a dream:
Brimming with faith and wonder.

Childhood memories deserve a second read. Thanks again Dominic and another full score. And keep retaining said imagination too. And battle any life denying system or systems.

Thanks Shaun. Essentially, I was trying to compose something child - like (rather than childish..there is a great difference) . Consequently, it is accompanied by a child's vivid painting. I think it's important to retain one's imagination, as in many cases, it seems to fade away as we grow older and unfortunately have to conform to ostensibly life denying systems.

A neat and nicely encapsulated poem displaying innocent childhood memories which are now colourfully recalled and reflected on. Neat and precise Dominic and great to read, a full score and take care and thanks for sharing too.
