The sound of children

comes in swells

like the sea…. I love

how they fill the emptiness and silence

with their unfettered selves, how

they interact and fly

with the spirit of kites

and the gulls foray.  How the clouds

pile in the distance and sit

cotton candy pink and purple 

as bruises on the horizon.

  1. Like you, I love the unfettered enthusiasm of children. They bring me such joy! Your poem twists into day bruises, however. Children can as quickly twist, too. Unfettered equals unpredictable! Ah yes, childhood should be freedom of spirit. I wish it were so for all children!

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
