    Sticky crayons melt rainbows on the splintered deck
    as paper crowns circle our heads.
    So sophisticatedly we sipped
    red, blue, green
    Kool-Aid with lazy bees
    buzz buzz buzzing
    Grass-bitten toes dangle,
    swinging free on a breeze
    as we spoke in our
    gently tumbling summer tongues.
    We squinted against bursting sunbeams
    and harsh forget-me-not skies.
    Fattened paws grasped at elusive clouds,
    childish laughs peppering the air.
    legs charge forward
    hitting walls of breeze,
    sweetly enfolding,
    cradling our small bodies.
    Band-aid knees bent,
    pumping wooden swings to racing
    towards the sky just to
    back humbly to kiss the ground.

    A spot in time, dog-eared,
    folded and refolded,
    from visit after visit.
    Hot dixie summers enveloped
    in child memories.

      I'd have to agree with the others on this piece. It was very straight forward and everyone could relate to it in one way or anther.

    I think I personally enjoyed the first couple of lines,

    "Sticky crayons melt rainbows on the splintered deck

    You described children at their best, doing what they do best. Super super write, I think this calls for a favorite. <3

      the best thing I've read on this site in days, maybe weeks. so easy. instant pictures developed in my mind, I can taste the Kool-Aid, I can see the fat bumblebees bumbling and the kids with summer time scrapes bandaged. this is quite perfect no doubt and a fave fo sho. Beautiful.

      This is probably the best thing that could ever come from a piece so simple and open. No thematic underlayers, no research-worthy allusions to biblical doctrine or greek mythology... just some fondly held memories expressed in a supremely vivid and imaginative way. That's all it is and that's all it needs to be. It's actually very refreshing. Nice work.
