In Response to Photo Prompt by Jim Reeves

I am but a child,
Napping in the daylight,
Gathering sunflower seeds,
Catching raindrops on my tongue,
Giggling at nothing,
Laughing at everything,
Crying in the dark,
Holding tight,
Running away,
Wiggling my fingers and toes,
Blinking and winking,
Nodding yes
And shaking no,
Asking for everything,
Wanting nothing.

I am but a child,
Today is mine,
Tomorrow, a thought,
A worry for some,
A fantasy for me.

I am but a child
And I have all I need —
Today.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
