Nostalgia


A child sees brazen skies,
A cloud that nuzzles the sun,
On an August day.

I only feel heat,
And hunger for my lost youth
And innocent eyes.

That lost youth can be a great loss. Excellent words.

This is so nicely done. I can feel the heat myself.

Phew, I'll second what Gautami said, but I do hunger for my lost youth too, sometimes!

Nicely done!!

That was a tasty post - can I have some more?

love this - Gem has the waves nuzzling the sand and you have the clouds nuzzling the sun. Makes nature kind of cuddly :)

This is beautifully evocative of a state we all arrive at. We can't do much about losing our innocence, but I believe a youthful mindset always remains possible.
