The Seven-Year Magic

When I was a child
There were no monsters
In the alcove of my
Closet, only mysteries.
Time weighed itself
By the illumination
Of a tree branch,
And the playwright
Of each morning
Bore no earthly limitation:
I would become anything
My heart could imagine
By the sleepy time
Noon came, bearing dreams.


Written for a prompt at Warning the Stars Saturday.

  5. A child's fantasy can go many directions. Great way to relate episodes to memories of old. They turn out to be basically the same for most children! Wonderful lines Stacy!
