Memories of Summer Holidays as a Child Made Me Think…

That time is a spiral

born on the point of beginning.

Six weeks of dry dusty summers and hobbling home, grass stained knees, tired and hungry

in my favourite t-shirt, an exclamation mark!

Long Long Loops, we don’t notice the curve

as childhood gives way to the bursting bloom of youth

trembling on the edge of glory.

The beautiful girl with crow black hair…

Now, looking back, years blur as they churn

relentlessly.

A rueful wisdom, hard won

as we race toward

the centre
