The Child in Us a poem by RestLeSsD

Oh to be
A child again,
That is my wish today.
No worries, cares or troubles,
Just thinking of games to play.

Oh to be
A child again,
To play along the shore,
Holding my brothers hand
As together we explore.

Oh to be
A child again,
To dance and sing out loud
Pretending that we can fly
And float up to the clouds.

Oh to be
A child again,
Was I ever really 10?
It seems like only yesterday.
Couldn’t it have been?

Oh to be
A child again,
If only for one day.
No worries, cares or troubles,
Just thinking of games to play.

I was thinking originally of mother & child but somehow this became more of a childhood memory of siblings. As a woman, a sister, a mother and grandmother I look at the past & am thankful for the good times I had as a child and hope that I am helping to create some memories for the people in my life.
I know that many things molded me into the person that I am now and push me toward the things in life that I enjoy the most. With this little poem and the image I hope to stir that memory, that moment, that thought in you . . . One that takes us back to a sweeter, gentler time.
. . . Thank you in advance for looking and commenting…

Original photos shot with a Nikon CP8400 at St. George Island, FL, USA June 2010.
This started out as a Pseudo-HDR image taken to the next level and made into a digital fantasy painting. Created in PSCS2. I used the Orton Effect to soften various layers and added some overlay textured layers that had been processed in DAP & the Fractalius Filter..
