Writing Prompt #183 “Collage 32” – Inner Child


It was a song about a rainbow that held your interest

And the amazed look on your face when I sang it to you

Across the great divide we reached into each others hearts

Exploring ever exploring, learning to love again.


We debated what to bring, what to leave,

The material possessions we had held onto so long

No longer needed, not in a different world

Where old selves could let go to embrace new personas.


You sent me images of favourite flowers,

The books you favoured adorning your sitting room

The clothes off your back you were to sacrifice

To take on the garb of a new world.


Finally it was the girl in you I most enamoured to

The way you made me smile with the magic of your laughter

Caught in a time warp, a time when love was carefree

We rejoiced the inner child within us was alive and well.

    Lovely. If music be the voice of love, play on.

  4. Kleenex time (of course). I should begin a rating system — this is a two boxer at least. Such beautiful use of the images and such a hopeful romantic piece. Spring really has sprung in you this year.

    Oh, Michael, I’m welling up! It reminds me a little of the poem I wrote for my daughter when she got married. 🙂
