Childhood


eyes of innocence
childhood curiosity, bright 
dandelion seeds


~0~0

children in the streets
playing ball, tag, running free,
bells pealing laughter

  9. I like that second one! So much, it is very true, and endearing! :) I also miss those playground days, like Kirti says.. Nostalgia is very powerful.

  13. Just when I read that, I could instantly feel the dust of seeds mixed with scent, fluttering butterflies and heat playing for hours in the playground after school. I agree with Leo & Kriti, Nostalgia is powerful and so as the words are. Sometimes, a single word sets a difference and takes you back to the times where your soul is. Loved this Haiku & those last two words :)

  25. Even dandelion seeds seem special through the eyes of a child. (Of course, you said it much better than I just did, Haiku Queen!)
