Inner child

Imagist poetry for #TopTweetTuesday

A lonely childhood
Peering outside
Tracing frost fairies
On a chilly windowpane
Whispering a wish
For tender icicle streaks
To fly far far away!
Her dreams grow wings
Like gossamer butterflies
When she touches them
Powdery dust crumbles
In tiny, empty hands
Flickering like stars
That drive her destiny

I received some lovely feedback on this piece today.

Haven

Haven

Find me the peace
Of pure innocence
Free me from shackles
Let me sense miracles
Unleash the inner child
Conjour faces in a cloud
Marvel at a shimmery bug
Whisper to a tiny bird
Play with a grass blade
Count stars in night’s parade
Let my soul revel in nature;
A haven for every creature!
