Remembering My Hand in Yours, Your Hand in Mine
Remembering is the second in a series of poetry written to soothe the heart and lift the spirit. The first, Echoes, was published in 2004. As with Echoes, the message is from the heart inspired by life, love, and whispers of yesterday. In contrast, it reflects an emotional journey through childhood days recalling facets of family ties, camaraderie, and adversity. While some thoughts are fact and others fiction, the recollections are rooted in moments to evoke a personal emotion, set a purpose for tomorrow, and provide an insight for reflection. It is a means for sharing love, dreams, and inspirations to send a heart racing, free a heart of grief, or perhaps even offer a path for forgiveness.
Everyone has a special journey in life. Remembering is written as a transcript of uplifting words, which hopefully may transform your life or the lives of others. It is written as a story to be read from beginning to end or independently as words of wisdom and encouragement to get you through the day or an eventful time in your life. The intent is for you to reflect on the poetry as words of wisdom and ponder their thoughts and emotions often.
Dancing cool summer rain
Splattered fervently in the street
“Come play outside”
Invited this dry summer treat
Frolicking in the rain
Excited giggles and laughter
Mud puddle hunting, finding, jumping
Beset memories the morning after
Noisy, croaking frogs
Begged catching in a jar
Scooping up in one swift motion
Precise and quite bizarre
Laying with backs against the earth
Letting the rain touch our faces
Licking and savoring the rain drops
Incited thoughts of faraway places
Collecting yucky worms
Putting them in a can for fishing
Running home all soggy and a mess
Left hot chocolate for the wishing!
Hopping into some warm fuzzy clothing
Looking out the window at the pouring rain
Being all warm and cozy inside
Enhanced the reality of summer rain!
Taking all breath away with its beauty
The ominous skies shed soft torrents of rain
Suddenly, we longed to go outside
And play in the rain again
