Innocence Is A Place Where.....

Updated on February 25, 2010

Innocence is a place where

Innocence is a place

where we are bathed,
in our brightest sun

that highlights the blush

of youth at it's finest moments.

Like the dust motes

that float oblivious
to the fall they are slowly taking
life is a swirling dance of bliss,
a giddy wonderland to sample.
remember that first

taste of ice cream,
sweet orange pushup

melting on your lips,
or of watermelon,

a crescent of juices dripping,
and many wonderful seeds to spit.
energy bursting at

the screams of jubilation
nothing to do but play all day.

Adulthood is a cloud

that blocks some of the glow,
drains some of the

energy with the riegns
of responsibility that

must be undertaken.

Though occassionally

we revert back to
the giddy and silly

moments we once knew,
as full grown moms

and dads leap into
piles of leaves,

or kick sneakers
high into the sky on

a swing long vacated.
living vicariously

through their children,
a taste of innocence returns again..
under the same sun

that once caused us
to spin in dizzying circles
in a vast meadow of daisies.
