Oooh, quite a tricky prompt for Colleen & Ronovan’s Writer’s Challenge post. Collen has given us ‘innocence to work with. I came across this quote which summed up innocence perfectly for me.
“When we are children we seldom think of the future. This innocence leaves us free to enjoy ourselves as few adults can. The day we fret about the future is the day we leave our childhood behind.”
- Patrick Rothfuss
Those carefree days of childhood
Spent playing in the sun
Staying out from dawn till dusk
Laughing and having fun.
Playing footie on the field
Or swimming on a rope
Looking forward to each day
Fresh faces filled with hope.
Dancing with abandon
Free from worry and strife
No thought for the future
Just enjoying life
Relishing each moment
Splashing in the sea
Staying round a friend’s house
Having fish and chips for tea
Innocence is precious
As it doesn’t last that long
Savour every moment
As once it’s gone, it’s gone!
Beautifully innocent indeed sis!
Thank you, Sis 🙂

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
