Stripping away the rose colored glasses of denial concerning my reality. Getting in touch with truth. Reaching out to others in empathy concerning their reality and their walk to truth.

a child's summer

Sunlight plays on the garden
where tiny bees gather nectar.
I watch as they sip from all the flowers,
taking hours to get their fill.

It takes me far away
from the things that trouble me.
Life slows down for just a while,
I have to smile and  remember when.

Teddy bear clouds dance on the wind,
float through the air and gone.
That was a summer to never forget,
never regret the growth of my soul.

Even as my Mom called to me
a time for dinner, then to bed.
The day was through,
goodnight to you, you flew on.
