The beauty of children playing with glee

Delighted sounds of laughter cheered the air

Despite the squeaking they were all carefree

Heard their back and forth during Truth or Dare

Living life seemingly without a care

Those days are gone, if they were ever real

The energy is what they wished to share

Take even a small fraction of their zeal

One was hiding behind that tall oak tree

Must then have been time for the hide and seek

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
