“Life is not a perfect circle, but more a triangle… a mix of varying lines and sharp corners, leading from A to B to C… and eventually back to me.”

Tripping the boundaries of time,
reverting to peace-filled hours among
infinite fields of yellow dandelion sails
anchored in waves of green under
noontide ocean of cloudless blue.
Gone now those childhood days when
lilac scent promised endless summer…
existing now only in mind’s eye lie the
simple sweet songs of my youth.

  1. existing now only in mind’s eye lie the
    simple sweet songs of my youth.....
    beautiful poem, Ginny.

  2. This has a beautiful flow and sentiment.

  3. ha some fun flow in this just got to let that child out to sing some more....smiles...

  4. I enjoyed you combination of words and image! Very nice! Also, really resonated to this "Gone now those childhood days...existing now only in mind’s eye lie." Kudos, Roger ☺

  5. ah,Ginny you have captured the memories well...the very reason I enjoy spending so much time with Mason. Through a child's eye the "lilac scent promised endless summer" lives on.

  6. mmmm...all of those images scream childhood to me - I miss them too. nicely done, Ginny.

  7. Lovely...those memories can bring us such peace if we let them.

  8. Nicely nostalgic, Ginny. The lack of stanza-breaks actually helps keep a snug, vignette feel. Breaks may stilt the narrative (I'd almost never say that!)


Thank you for reading my poetry and sharing your thoughts.
