Poetic Thursday: Survivors

Thursday means poetry here at These Days. Each week, we join Pam and her kitties, Teddy and Angel Sammy, to share poems at Two Spoiled Cats.

Last week, they provided us with this photo for our inspiration:

Here’s my poem:


My friends are going to the park to play;
Mom said okay, so I’m headed that way.

Barefoot and happy, we played in the dirt
never giving a thought to getting hurt.

Splinters from that old merry-go-round,
bruises and bumps when we hit the ground.

Long before cell phones or trips to the mall,
and somehow, we managed to survive it all.
