Naked girl

giggling down the road

Babysitter chasing

with the bath towel.

Toddler joyfully

on the run.




I can still hear the giggles in memory, though the toddler in question is now 33 years old.  🙂

    A charming poem to begin the morning. BTW, although a Michiganian, I’ve visited that part of BC several times. Love Fraser Canyon, Revelstoke, and Rogers Pass.

  11. After reading this poem, your imagination starts to work. You dream about a little girl and her babysitter is chasing her. That’s awesome.

    I remember a similar situation – mine is now 19. This piece oozes sweet with a nostalgic tear.

  14. Haha. Its funny how you get a kick out of this when you’re younger. Why? You have no idea what nakedness is. But knowing your parents will chase you makes it all worth it.

    Something about naked babies and Springtime just go hand in hand down the road.
