Remember Play? A Poem, #FiveMinuteFriday

Remember play?

The soul release,
A swooning, sweet peace

Can you feel the gritty sand in your hair?
Kingdom castles tower then crumble in the salt air

Hide-and-seek in the black of night
Thrilling mix of can’t see and get out of sight

The baby doll’s permanent face
Mothering, feeding, rocking … whatever the place

Dressing up, forever becoming
Astronauts and superheroes running and jumping

Where does play go,
As years stack upon us, and our spirits grow?

Let us not leave the wonder in the past
Imagination’s potential is gloriously vast!

  1. Such an important question. Why do we abandon play as a regular activity? We tend to embrace it in second generation terms. It’s as if we give ourselves permission again. But our minds would do well to make it a significant life rhythm.
