haystacks and imaginary things



Flying carefree on the breeze
Colored leaves full of sun 
Glint joyously as they twirl

Like pages falling 
From my book of life
Celebrating-
Reminding me of when 
I was young 

Carefree, just a wisp
Treading barefoot 
Along gravelly roads
When days were long

And I - all alone
Would leap off haystacks
Just me –and the wind
Blue skies, clouds 
And imaginary things

Until sunset beckoned
It is time- you must go home.

    I love all about this. The title really made me smile. This reminds me of life before bills and the nominal things. When fun and just leaping with free will was the best. Your writes are just a breath of fresh air, thank you Karen

    No I was never on a farm- just visited them- some I snuck in to play on the haystacks : ) I would walk for miles on my own when I was young- I didn't have mum then only a grandma who didn't know where I was.
