Memories of childhood fun;
Great joy recaptured!

I love the nostalgia of rediscovering a childhood toy, game or book and sparing a moment to reminisce.

Deep within your head,
Social values play their game,
When the mirror’s had its fun,
You no longer look like you.

Lazy summer days
Swim into view in a memory haze,
The warm glow of nostalgia and sun,
Lingering glimpses of friendship and fun,
Images from the past,
Whose ghostly presence is fleeting,
Feel so bittersweet,
With longing and happiness meeting,
