First Day That FELT Like Spring

finally warm sun
open office window chimes
children skipping ropeyouthful ignorance
have not touched their liveshow many doctors
did it take? one, skip, two skip
rope snapping sharply

how many doctors
will it take? o crack, my old
knees snapping sharply

when did that childhood
move so very far away
distant like a dream

(reflection on watching the school children from my window this very long day 🙂
