Age of Innocence

He walks a limb, unconcerned, undeterred, master of his own destiny.

Alone at the top of the world, competent, exuberant.

Dangling meters above the earth, unafraid, unhampered.

Innocence in motion, carefree; nonchalance as an art form.

My heart climbs with this fearless child, for my body no longer can.

May he know this joy for the entirety of his life.

  1. That’s a touching poem. Your grandson looks pretty comfortable up there among the branches, not to mention cool with his shades on.

    I used to love climbing trees too. Sadly, I’m not sure I could still climb them nowadays. I’m confident my ability to fall out of them remains undiminished, though.
