songs of innocence*

i reminisce
my childhood days
running free
with outstretched arms

oh halcyon days!

* inspired by William Blake’s Songs of Innocence and Experience

When I first studied Blake’s poems in my university days, I could not figure out what was going on in his poems. Now, I think I have a better appreciation of his words. With age comes experience, I supposed.

Prompt: Weekend Writing Prompt #112 – Carefree

I Write Her Weekly Haiku/Senryu Challenge #21


I will not be trapped
by the four oppressing walls
but fly with the moon.

The desire to fly under the full moon, toward a destination, without any baggage. The best kind of flight ever. But the image is poetic in how it captures the full moon, the clouds and the birds, using the buildings as a kind of frame.
