NaPoWriMo April 29 and Photo Challenge to share a photograph that captures motion and tell the story behind it. Several summers ago we were delighted to have our daughter and grandchildren join us for a weekend in Provincetown. Oh the joys and innocence of childhood!
Apple tree blossoms in curly hair
knocked off their branches
during the morning climb
by scraped and knobby knees.
Sidewalks with white chalk not snow
crooked squares and wiggly numbers
smudged by hop scotch jumps
and dripping lime popsicles.
Seaside escapades scented by Coppertone
childhood tag at water’s edge
joy forever captured in portraits
of red-brown freckles on sun flushed cheeks.
