Reminiscent

Hungry petals writhe in the hot sun

sweltering sand dunes

lingering fun

pastel sunsets

childhood dreams

jasper breezes

 misty moonbeams

ocean scented rains

Christmas candy canes

fists of wrath

Mr. Bubble bath

barbie and ken

jump rope days

hopscotch

plastic soldiers

swatch watch

dodgeball

tag

crickets in the dead of night

chills up my spine

eyes of fright

ice cream wars

pillow fights

Scooby Doo

Brady bunch

Dukes of hazard

brown bag lunch

scary spiders with 800 eyes

3 older brothers and their lies

red pick-up truck

Florida fun

cartwheels in the outfield

still not done

winter snows of billowy white

my feet by the heater, sneaking at night

the crimson sun before a rain

the swells of the ocean under the stars

the ripples of the lake

hairbrush microphone

quilts for me that were sewn

popcorn movie nights

numerous adolescent fights

my Brothers and their corny ways

my first bag of Frito Lays

high school hooplas

Friday football night

big red my ride, my friends by my side

the Miata that wouldn’t go

7th grade haircut that wouldn’t grow

familiar faces you no longer know

tons more memories, I can not show……
