hurriedly 

putting on the mask -

snap of a string

SUNDAY SMILES



❧✿❧


BLOG HOPPING TODAY WITH

squashed grass -

bare feet and shoes

in sync

shoes empty of feet

skies in the dearth of birdsongs -

plight of refugees

bombs make the loud noise

smiles left in yesterday's pace -

borders crossed in haste

oh for the freedom -

of feet sripped bare to squelch mud

in rainy day fun

Tickle trot; on this cool dampened grass; bare-foot.

Love both poems: have to add masks to the list of things that I'm now running back into the house, having forgotten it. The second one amplifies the idea of breathlessness into an overwhelming pressure to continue running.

Sadly, it is becoming more difficult to remember days of unbridled joy, mud squishing between our toes … take care, Gillena.

This brought back the old memories of years gone by. Thanks Gillena! They are gone never to come back again but can be re-lived for those who care!
