And I Remember
by Ronny Self
The grass flowing in the breeze
Moments of joy, unbounded
By the constraints of want and greed.
Air singed with innocence long gone.
Sunlight peeking through trees
Love of simplicity, founded
On the edge of wanton creed.
Wind whispering with the joy of a song.
Color crayon rainbows drawn
Hasty hours spent, through
Reading books splayed on the lawn.
The sands of time are moving on.
And now I remember
That those moments are all gone
And there’s nothing left to do
But pack up and move on.
…Moments faded with the dawn.
