a summer song (poem)

a summer song (poem)

(related to my previous post, I just wasn’t done writing it last night, I am happier with the flow now…. perfect? eh, probably not, but when in the moment…)

a summer song
walking in the sun
on sand on street on lawn
transports me back to youth
a child’s time, set the loose,
all structure was built on wonder
in that first moment we discover
a bird a bee a bush
a squirrel a jack a clover
allowing the developing mind to ponder
without the fear that bears us forward
I wish I might have stayed
a child – just a bit longer
or grant the power from within
to once again – grow younger,
walking in the sun,
transformed once more to youth
for even for a moment’s pause
bask in that most basic truth


musical musing for the evening… maybe not obscure… but man I love this song…
