A Blessed Restoration.

Updated on January 30, 2010

 

A Blessed Restoration.

 

They were the first

to discover it,

a sun dial in Paradise park,

that could reverse time,

simply by touching

its shadowed mark.

 

At ninety-years plus,

they were curious about

how much time they had left,

when suddenly, as they

touched that magical sun tracker,

they were filled with an

incredibly exuberant energy,

and found themselves standing

on tippy-toes just to reach the top.

 

Their unwrinkled hands

and gazes of astonishment

revealed that they were toddlers again,

just about four years old.

 

They danced around that

pedestal like puppies in a

frenzy at feeding time,

and the last I heard they

were swinging high in the air,

at the park's playground,

tilting their tousled blond

heads back to make

butterflies in their tummies,

and squealing with the

sheer delight of starting over.

      This reminds me of the Twilight Zone movie where the old people play kick the can... :)
