Early Memories

May 20, 2015

Events and brief moments from the past can often, unexpectedly, inspire a poem. As here:


A young girl
with a ponytail

delves in her toybox
too deep to see

what her hand

She pulls out
a forgotten toy

screams, flings it
and runs

away from Mrs Potato Head
whose eyes

are sprouting.

And sometimes a drawing, too:


Did you know that I have another website dedicated to one specific aspect of childhood memories: toys? It’s my Virtual Toy Museum. If you are interested in toys from the past, do please visit.
