There was a day

There was a day when I was twelve.

I sat upon a purple blanket, on the green field beside the park’s baseball diamond.

The sun blazed hot.

My bare toes searched through cool blades of June grass.

I had no cares except everything.

Happiness.

  1. Love this post. “I had no cares except everything.” This is an amazingly complex line. I could ruminate on it for hours. Ingriguing! And oh yes…..for so many, those simple innocent days of childhood exuded happiness in their contentment.

  2. Sounds pretty nice! I can feel the care free feeling in this piece, and often, children are just exuberant. Excellent poem.
