Simple, Sweet, Pure and Clean January 15, 2013


Once…

life was simple, sweet,

pure and clean.

seemingly infinite days of summer brought

sun-burnt noses, pony-tailed hair,

skinned knees and rosy freckles

sprinkled on tan faces.

Friendships

born and cementedMoonlight

over grilled cheese sandwiches,

soda pop on back steps,

energetic backyard baseball,

and rainy day marathons

of Monopoly and Clue.

Glowing flashes of yellow fireflies,

streetlights illuminating the dusk,

and hide-n-go-seek

brought the golden days to an end

when

life was simple, sweet,

pure and clean.

    Flashback! Really not that long ago.

  3. H. Stern Says:

    OMG that was so beautiful. Seriously. That’s the type of writing that echoes in your soul.

  4. this reminds me of William Blake’s little girl lost/little girl found from songs of innocence and songs of experience.
