Childlike

Yesterday’s Prompt at Poetry Playing:
“Spring has returned.The Earth is like a child that knows poems.” Rainer Maria Rilke
clip_image002My Poem:
 
childlike
 
breezes caress my nape brushing the small hairs up on end
I dance across new grass encouraged by soft tickles on toes
laughter pirouetting through blossoming magnolias
and bursting fragrance from wild cherry trees
filled with starlings gossiping their winter adventures

  1. Wee Willie Winkie
    Runs to the cupboard
    Trying not to be Stinkie
    He downs a Woo Woo
    And his mother goes Boo Hoo
