do you remember as a child
when you and your friends
find a simple spot
of grass as
high as 
your knees that at that moment
you treat as bushes, and
trees with trunks barely
as big as
your arms, 
which you already consider a jungle
and a path of water 
from storm drains only
a couple of 
inches wide
imagined as a river? caring 
not for mosquito bites 
you play as
if you
found a new planet to 
call your own. and
that was already

the adventure
of a lifetime.
