Five years old.
Clouds like eyes in the summer sky.
Fairies frolic through dandelion fields.
In a timeless abyss
I roll down grassy hills,
search for four leaf clovers
dance on the moons of mars,
Fly carelessly through the milky-way.
Back on earth shines a distant hue of blue,
Tiny diamonds gleam in the hot sun,
A breathless wonder.
Run, Run, Run!
Leaping without limit, I am transformed.
Prince, princesses, and dragons, yes!
My brother and sister join the journey
Our lives intertwine, imaginations merging into one.
Minds and hearts the key to creation, our reality.
Building a palace,
tall, infinite, and spectacular.
Billions of particles become a united whole,
Something out of nothing. Powerful beyond measure.
Day turns to night.
The moon and the stars radiate.
Galaxies collide in a striking blend of song and light.
A wind so great sweeps through –
Shifting the grains, my tower, my world.
The dragon leans on the balcony’s edge,
“we’ll save you” – my sister sings to the dragon,
A fantasy etched into reality.
together on a mission, united
like a harmonious symphony –
Stronger now, the castle stands.
“Time for dinner,” echoes a familiar voice in the distance.
We stand up and smile
A welcome detail in our shared journey.
“Last one in is a rotten egg,” I shout.
Just another day in the living sandbox.
