Black and White

Do you remember black and white?

A simpler time,
cares tossed into the wind

…when your only appointment for the day was, “don’t be late for dinner”

…when the one thing that could spoil your day was rain, as it washed the sidewalk chalk away

…when evenings were spent chasing fireflies, and the whole family supervised

From then to now
The time is spent
And I wonder where
That young girl went.
