Whimsy found in the unexpected
quiet places bathed in color,
come calling to the childhood soul
play awhile and remember me,
in a glade of giggles
we spin round and welcome
the return of youth.
Crayola hues of red, yellow and blue
touches something within the soul
that sheds the mantle of age
for just enough time to bring joy
to a tired mind,
recharged in abundance of belonging,
laughter and mirth in a quiet place
where the child inside
can again play
with the forgotten tools and sights
of a rainbow hued herd
that silently wait
to make merry.
