Dabbling in drivel.
Shunning serious themes .
Skipping thoughts as flattened stones
across the concious stream .
To touch upon youths folly
forever following fun .
Sending cares off to the cleaners
watch them as they run .
Adventure bound at any moment
like the hero in a book .
As immune to the grasp of father time
as little boys from pirate's hooks .

Arcing smoothly on it's path
to touch down further out .
To a time when no matter the question
we knew what it all was about .
The ripples here are fewer
not as large , and more compressed .
But some within their number
reflect the times that were the best .

The next skip seems to come too quick
as does each successive one .
As demands weigh on momemtum
speeding up what must be done .
In a spinning rush of images
half seen from safe on shore .
I watch old memories dissipate
throwing thoughts to re-live more .

Such kind words , and I appreciate every one.
I may have to go to critical analysis though if I am flattered by too many more .

This is a very intriguing read, although I look to see if I can see a particular rhyme scheme, it was a little hard for me to "get the beat", but I thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless!! It was nice - every time I felt myself looking for the rhyme, there it was ! Fabulous!
