remember the innocence – a poem

remember the innocence

Little fingers and toes, testing,
tasting everything in sight,
kicking toys with all your might,
only stop when you are resting.
I hold on tight, you resisting,
exploring in every nook,
each toy, object, mirror and book,
turning over all of your toys
squealing in a surprising noise
I loved you with only a look.

poetic asides

For today’s prompt, take the phrase “Remember the (blank),” replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write the poem. Of course, “Remember the Alamo” immediately springs to mind, but there are any number of things people can forget and need to remember. A few examples include: “Remember the Kids,” “Remember the Dentist Appointment,” and “Remember the One Time You Did That One Thing.” Have fun remembering this week! – Robert Lee Brewer
