Ah, To Be Young Again

Ah, To Be Young Again

I envy the quality
of their frivolity:
kids with the vision
of nuclear fission
filling their rollicking
ceaseless wild frolicking, 
savoring everything
that each new day will bring—
clandestine meetings
or open-air greetings.
Ah, to be young
with our dirges unsung.
I’d roll in more clover
Could I do it over.

Prompt words today are rollicking, clandestine, vision,  savor and quality.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

      Are they your children? My husband had 8 children so there was a time in my life where there were lots of them! A lot of these photos are from children’s camps we conducted in Mexico. Such a joy.



    I especially like the ones of you, often in your white princess like clothes that your mom so proudly put you in, then you would often go out and sit in the dirt… To me that would be the Judy Dykstra I envision~!
