Childhood Left Behind

Left Behind

I saw this child’s sock on this fence post on my walk today. My Spirit had been calling me to breathe in the fecundity of the Earth and I heeded the call. I went outside with my Teva sandals, a raincoat and no hood. I wanted to feel the rain on my face, to smell the wetness in the air. I used to ride my horse bareback in the rain as a child. I wanted to recapture that feeling.

So I found this sock. A symbol of lost childhood. It was a gift from my angels offered to me as a reminder to play, to dance, to skip, to regain those lost fragments of childhood that brought me joy.

I skipped, twirled, sang and splashed in mud puddles all the way home.
