Raped by time

Ravaged by education

One of my fantastic nephews, enjoying the snow. Taken by their lovely mother.

By knowledge and truths

The imagination slips

Crawls beneath a dusty toy box

Stolen from us

by hormones

by cell phones

by newspaper headlines

by age

    A friend of mine observed that her grandson…. ‘his little 3yr old mind seems big to me’ We need to nuture our children but we also need to remember to nuture ourselves. Your poem is a timely reminder, thank you x
