A Distant Childhood
By: 'The Gurl of Myth' Rebecca C. Lofgren

I looked out the window and watched the raindrops
fall from the heavens to the ground below.
I felt a slight chill run down the small of my back,
so I grasped more tightly the blanket that sheltered me.
I wanted to go off and play in the rain,
but I'm too old for that, now.
I remember as a child, running out
and feeling little sprinkles dribble down my cheeks,
then all of a sudden globs of rain would pour down.
I long to run out and jump in the puddles,
suddenly realizing they're deep as lakes.
But, I'm too old for that, now.
We never realize how quickly time passes us by.
I lifted my mug of hot cocoa
and laughed at how the steam warmed my nose.
I closed my eyes and began to dream of the raindrops consuming me and felt good inside, all over again.
