Daydreaming


i dreamt i was a child again
bright eyed and soulful,
the world in my hands
to hold and behold;

on a magic carpet ride,
a soft place to land
the clouds, my playground
imaginary friends;

a playhouse in the sky,
my heart's window
open and unbroken,
everything there was possible

and it still is ...

As children, the world seemed a magical place where everything was possible. Wouldn't it be awesome to feel that childhood wonder again and dream of what could be? I took this picture of an adorable playhouse in my neighborhood, which inspired my poem. This is my contribution to Poetry Jam, where this week's topic is "daydream."

  7. An evocative childhood poem. The last line is significant. Childhood dreams are not connected to age but to feelings. Every poet has such dreams no matter how old s/he is. Every romantic human being has such dreams. Dreams help us survive.

  8. I enjoyed this, thinking about childhood dreams. And yes, everything still is possible; but I think as adults we have to think about them and realize that they are....whereas when we were children we KNEW they were without even trying!

    1. Thank you for sharing your childhood experience, Laurie. Sometimes childhood can be difficult for some and less than perfect. My poem is meant to be a daydream, idealizing the innocence and purity of childhood as it should be. With that positive mindset that everything is possible, all dreams can come true! :)
