Childhood Memories

Summer day, I ventured out to play. Swung up high in the sky, climbed my favorite tree, pretended I could fly. Discovered cloud-formed shapes, spied a stratus dragon and cirrus whales in capes. A quick game of catch with my pal Sam, then we built us a fort in the barn; with fake guns we felled foes and yelled “Bamm!” Summers and childhood passed quickly by, Sam and I now Afghanistan bound. Soldiers under a hot desert sky, our minds revive those halcyon days when our mission was just to have fun. “Stay alive” pleads our new mission’s phrase.
