Simpler Times

I remember wishing I could fly,

Admiring the starlit sky,

Making the swing go too high,

When best friends lived nearby,

Going on long hikes,

Riding our bikes,

Even gray

Snow day







Return to Home


  1. I remember so immersed in the delicious moment of wind on my face and hair unfurled by the breezes I closed my eyes while riding my bike and crashed into the back of a freshly painted parked car. Asked by the owner if I was alright I got up covered in blue and wobbled my way back home.

  2. I wanted to fly too…all the way to the moon, on to Mars and beyond…be an astronaut. But as I grew older, I found out the training one needed, and since I was lazy, my mind turned inward. I began to write. Your poem took me back to my stargazing days. Thanks. 🙂


    1. Absolutely my pleasure! Writing is an excellent alternative! It allows you to create with words what you would have wanted to see if you could fly. Thanks for the visit!


    1. You are so right. My son thinks he’s so fortunate to have his computers, hand held games, and pricey counsels. I think he’s missing out on some much cooler stuff, like building a fort in the woods and pretending it’s his castle. 😉
