a lot to giveaway

…….a lot to giveaway

Nothing is sweeter than restored faith,
as too, the restored hotplate, the  crashed computer
now renewed by the turn of a screw.
The electrician, the technician who overthrew such
arrogant technology, and me faithless, yet

I remember, time standing still, eternal,
 Summer’s afternoons,  in boarding school
left with only paper, scissors and glue and
 the enchanted worlds that grew

Childhood is a lot,
 too much to giveaway for this
complicated adulthood, never to find that child
 the little lost pilgrim –
 her inventive-ness.

A small turn of the mind and our inner child is rediscovered. You will recognize her by the accompanying laughter. I enjoyed your poem.

I agree, childhood is precious. We may have to grow older and grow up but we should never put away our childish wonder. I love the line "I remember time standing still" Didn't it seem like we were always waiting for something and it took forever to arrive?

Wow, this is what all of us need to hold on to. It is nice though to have those little things fixed.
