APED: "all you need"

February 9th, 2009 (10:28 am)

Dirt and water. All you need.
An afternoon of fun.
Squish the mix beneath your feet.
Mud pies in the sun.

Tree and sunlight. All you need.
Peace after you've played.
A nap, a lunch, perhaps a book.
Resting in the shade.

Shoes and pathway. All you need.
Then you're bound away.
Forest, meadows, city street.
Wander though the day.

As for me? I'm old now, child.
Enjoy those while you're new.
Go on. I'll just wait here a while,
And take delight in you.

Excellent and enjoyable, as always. It's nice to see your lighter side from time to time, as well.

Babs has new toys

That's really nice!

...I should have looked to the end first, though. I kept bracing for the horrifying ending.

NOT THIS TIME.

(Keep looking over your shoulder.)

Jimmy Buffett-esque

Good one, dude
This reminds me of a Jimmy Buffet tune - I think it was "Beautiful Noise" or something like that
Too many folks either forget their inner child, or embrace it too much,
Nice work
