Childhood Floats

(Image Source: http://www.hhmi.org)


childhood floats
through bubble ring, and now
just a memory

just a memory
of innocent giggles, and laughs
lost somewhere

lost somewhere
in humdrums of monotony
childhood sinks

  14. I "see" little people around the world wh have no childhood.
    They have so little--seems to me--they have
    NOT EVEN A CHILDHOOD TO LOSE.
