cloverflowersMy Adult mind
drowning in tides of dust
Reaches back across
the ocean of time
To grasp the hand
of my child heart
which remembers
the Sorcery and Magic
of a place
where the day was measured
in mealtimes
Love, was quantified in
Paper Hearts
ragged and ordinary
clover flowers
were a bouquet
for a Queen….

    This is very beautiful. I needed to read these words today. My heart is heavy with the senseless killings going on in the world. Blessings and peace! ❀✌

    Cute. I have this image of you as this sweet small boy, giving a clover to your six-year-old crush. Great nostalgia in this poem πŸ™‚

    Aww Eric, this is lovely. Even though I’m just in my teenage years, I already miss my 7-year old self with that sweet innocence.

  9. Back to simpler times… Oh, what a dream! Beautifully written ❀️ πŸ™‚

    Yeah, sometimes it’s no fun being a grown up. I’d gladly return to those carefree days of running around barefoot, splashing in the creek, catching frogs and picking pretty weeds to make bouquets… Lovely and wistful. ❀️

    Yes indeed ❀

    At least I still get to relive these moments in my children. Nothing better than the wide-eyed look of simple joy, and discovery. Funny thing is…I think I still get like this too. Nature always brings it out. This is lovely, Eric. ❀ ❀ ❀

  13. I’m totally crying. I love this one so much. (Is this one of the poems you transferred to text from photo? It’s so familiar and I remember having the same reaction then.) πŸŒΈπŸŒΌπŸ’š #mast

    Your metaphors leave me breathless. Love where this poem took me and I’m staying there for a while. On a clover and honey field. ☺️❀️

  15. Aww your words! ❀️

  16. Emily says:

    Don’t know how I missed this one, but amazing, Eric. Beautiful capture of childhood memories ❀
