then

candy apples,
cotton candy,
roller coaster rides -
sweet memories of
then.

heavy quilts,
summer walks
in that small town -
things i remember
then.

ice cream trucks,
wading pools
in the backyard -
childhood joys now and
then.

late night giggles,
pretend play,
roly poly finds
things i used to do
then.

running under tables
during weddings
and dances
girls just at play
then.

salty air,
sea gulls calling,
waves rolling,
things i loved
then.

Aww, makes me miss my childhood... : )

funny, i wasnt exactly thinking of childhood...just the innocence of those "fresh" feelings that you have for someone/something...the newness...and then it goes away...for good or not, but those fresh feelings are always cool to think about...
