Reviving Childhood

Femininity must have tapped
Childhood's scrapbook. Pink-colored scrapbook.
Inside it
Lies Childhood's vibrant drawings

Under thin plastic blankets. Where is she now?
The brown-haired
Tan one
Or was she the blonde?

How many eras it's been since
I've seen her last!
Being Imagination herself
I flip through

The scrapbook like a photo album.
My friend Childhood's markered-in picture
At me stares

Back at her
Date with Fate.

Her blonde and brown short hair
Sweeps horizontally across her forehead.
Her wings remind me of her
Angelic Death

But I place a pale
Frail finger on the plastic
Blanket over the cream paper.
Over Childhood's darker cream hand

Holding it
Pulling it out of the captive page
Smoothing it over like folded clothes
Until the fingers uncurl

Long enough to reach Freedom's moon.

For Many Life Is A Hard Battle

For many life is a hard battle but most rise again after a fall
And from life babies do begin learning long before they learn how to crawl
It would be nice to stay innocent for a lifetime but the innocence of childhood doesn't last
The years seem to go by so quickly and time as we know ticks on fast
'Tis sad to think some children have their innocence from them stolen and are exploited in the worst possible way
That they cannot look back on a happy childhood does seem so sad to have to say
The crimes committed against children are not easy crimes to forgive
Those guilty of such terrible atrocities with their shame must find it hard to live
I consider myself to be lucky my childhood years I did enjoy
Compared to many I feel privileged I did enjoy life as a boy
In the green countryside west of Millstreet where I grew into a young man
I learned about life from my mentors and my enduring love of Nature began
For so many life is a hard battle and they've never known of happy years
And they must live with their haunting memories of their unhappy childhood years.

School Days: A Haiku

School bells are ringing
Hurried feet, birds make escape
Childhood memories
