sky blue

A sky blue longing for those days:

of yore –

of wonder.

Sky blue memories packed with smiles and ice cream dreams.

Toes tickling tadpoles in our stream, when I was eight

and running free.

Chasing butterflies and staring up

at a sky blue summer sky.

    This conjures beautiful afternoons in the uncut grass chasing butterflies, and how we still long for summers running after them? And still they escape the net!! Lovely post, keep ’em coming.

  6. Yes, a perfect description of what it is like to be a little girl looking up. I know. I was that little girl. Thank you for this memory. It made me smile. What is the tree?
