Every so often, I write poetry. I couldn’t tell you if it’s good or not, but I enjoy writing many types of things and every once in a while, a subject will enter my mind and I feel like it needs to be expressed in the form of poetry. I decided to share some of this poetry here with you. See what you think and please give me feedback. I’d love to hear from you, both good and bad. It helps to hear what you have to say so that I may become a better writer. Hope you enjoy.
Days Gone By
I recall vividly those long days spent frolicking outside
Picking flowers as we made sure to smell each one.
Everything seemed bigger then than it does now.
We could play for hours and run to our heart’s content.
Fluffy clouds became elephants or bears as we lay in the fresh cut grass.
Those days are gone, my friend.
They’ve been replaced with different days though just as busy.
We buy flowers, not pick them.
The world has become so much smaller, more convenient.
Clouds are just clouds.
Just for today, I choose to pick the tulips and see if they smell good,
take a walk along the newly greened grass,
lay with my kids and see which animals we can spot flying in the sky.
Just for today, I remember those days gone by.
I am young again but just for today.
Thanks for reading. Happy Daydreaming!
