Innocence (Inspired by my son when he was 4, he is 24 today)

Carefree
Leaves in the tree
Trace the outline of your face
Its innocence
forever
etched in the
shadows of the leaves
I see it sway
Develop with
the breath of the wind
But innocence
returns
If I look away
From any angles

You're never changed

This couldn't be more lovely, Lorraine. My youngest son just turned 25 last Friday and you are so right - the little boy is always inside them and we catch those heart-stopping glimpses...
