The Sky She Sees Is Beautiful

 To be at peace with myself again..

To ..

 Smell the scent of fresh-cut grass
 Hear the crunch of falling leaves
 Wear garlands of yellow daises
Feel the crisp air of the breeze.

Taste the rain upon my tongue
as drops drizzle on my lips
Run barefoot in fields of green
Welcome back the bird song bliss.

Leave behind shallow mud puddles
Roll-up track pants to my knees
Be happy with who I am
and the simple life I lead.


In simplicity lives memories
of who we were back then
Before adulthood took over
Kidnapped each sweet boy and girl.

Oh this little girl inside me
In dark woods it begs and screams
She knows nothing of the cluttered world
Her young heart belongs to dreams.

Her thoughts as snow     Untainted!
Her words   are loud and clear.
The sky she sees is beautiful
and love is everywhere.

PS: Just a simple poem :)

    There is nothing simple about this well written poem. Its speaks volumes about the desire of ones heart. When we were young life was uncomplicated and awe inspiring. Its no wonder we keep going back to it. You have penned a delightful poem. Thanks for the memories.Charmaine.

    Childhood, when Innocence and enchantment was the order of the day. It still lives deep inside of each of us, though buried by the worries, cares, and stresses of life. Hello again, Tom

    Hi Charma, This poem is not a simple write. It is beautiful and it reminds us to look for "beauty" although it may be hidden. When we change our perspective the beauty of "life" is all around us. Thanks for sharing this gem. I'm so happy that you are back:-) Alexis

    This is so beautiful, Charmaine! Isn't is funny how young people can't wait to be adults, but adults wish to go back their childhoods. ah to be young again, seeing beauty and unaware of all the bad things in the world. So glad you're back.
  1. Date: 11/3/2017 2:23:00 PM

    This one like so many of yours leaves me with a smile on my face. You paint beautiful images with your words Charmaine.

    Simply wondrous this write truly is! It's nice to read you again my friend, it's been so long since we've crossed paths, but it's nice to do so again! You poem expresses such an inner child wanting to come out and play again, such that we allow it to come forth, but protect it from the worlds harm! What a fabulous piece Charma, Great work!!

    Simple? No . Simply WONDERFUL. And it's so good to see you back here, Charma. Your first post in quite a while. Welcome back (oh, I see Richard had the same thought as I did!!)

    Two early Christmas gifts. This poem, and you. Whatever kept you away, I hope to keep at bay. With great respect, Rich

    Such a "simple" poem is so full of imagery utilizing the feel of our senses in the first part and turns meditative in the second, with a meaningful understanding of youth. Brilliant as in past days. Happy to see you back.
  1. Date: 11/2/2017 2:23:00 PM

    So happy to see you back my dear friend <3. And with such a wonderful poem! Not simple at all :)

    There is so much beauty around. Just because we are adults doesn't mean we have to give up the child inside...dance in the rain, jump through the puddles and sing to your hearts content...welcome back Charma : )
