Waits to Bloom

Positioned adult
In child’s world of innocence
Lost path, lost childhood

Littered memories
Laughter and dreams blown away
Flower waits to bloom

    I think this speaks to the lifelong development we all have…and it continually gives me hope for new possibilities to look forward to!

    This wonderful poem drives to search more diligently for that “lost path of childhood”, dear Becca. So nostalgic and accurate a way to make us properly value those childish ways of viewing and smelling the roses!

    “But look! This one’s late, but when it blooms it will be the most beautiful of all.”

    With nurturing, I’m sure the time of blooming will come again.
