Sun beams broadly,
watches innocence frolic
on Cape Cod shores.
through shallow waves.
tickles skipping, kicking feet.
Laughter punctuates the scene.
If I could, I would capture this joy.
Carry it in a bottle with perforated lid
and sprinkle it on the world at will.
Written for Tuesday Poetics at dVerse, the virtual pub for poets around the globe. Today Lisa tells us it’s time to play at dVerse!
Photo at Provincetown; our grandchildren many years ago.
A perfect capture and very positive wish, Lillian Thanks.
I really like how L2 would work equally well whether you use “innocence” or “innocents”. Salute
Yes oh to capture that joy ❤
And I would buy it and keep a supply on hand. Such sweet grandchildren and their innocent frolics.
The joy of children is contagious. (K)
I was born and raised in CT on the shoreline. I have only been out to the Cape maybe once or twice but we did frequent the beach. I have been dying to get my feet wet but here in FL we have the Red Tide again and I hate to go in at all.
I so adore that photo, Lillian! 😍 The world needs sprinkling of joy at the moment .. yes! ❤️❤️
A beautiful poem and a beautiful thought! We need a sprinkle in today’s world!
I think the world need such joy and playfulness
Love that last stanza. If only we could bottle up those wonderful days and spread them around.
Oh yes, to be able to capture that joy …. Such a sweet pic of your grands.
