How old were you
when you stopped
chasing fireflies in the summer
catching snowflakes on your tongue in winter?
Was it because
you found better things to do
had your soul been crushed
by some resounding reality,
like fearing the snap of your father’s belt
learning the truth about Santa Claus?
Do you ever wish
you had that kind of wonder back
and then shake away the wish
with reminders of
your grown-up realities,
Where or when did we lose
how can we get it back?
Perhaps the answer
can be found
in observing the scurrying activities of a squirrel
playing a game of peek-a-boo with a baby…
Isn’t our soul’s need
worth finding out?
I love this reading. It was a very special way to start my day. Thank you. God has truly gifted you.
