The image gave rise to this rather “playful” piece.

The child within,

released to play…

Drawn to this place

to chase, to wade

to splash, to laugh

to climb, to dance

to forget the pain.


Uninhibited, uncluttered,

unsullied, uncomplicated.

Spontaneously meeting

with kindred hearts

relishing the moments

cherishing the other

in child-like innocence


And refreshed returning

to face a different world
