A Memory

Author's Note: I was in downtown Pewaukee yesterday at the beach and Chocolate Factory with some friends.  When I was there, it reminded me of back when I was little and my family used to come down quite often.  Slowly over time, we stopped coming so this really brought me back.  

Back to the time
When I was little
Walking down by the shores
Hearing the sound of crashing waves
Squishing rocky sand between by toes
Feeling cool, raspberry ice cream drip down

Back to the time
When we used to walk
Down by the pier
And try to find fishies in the murky waters
Smelling the lake stench
Feeling the warm breeze against my skin
Those were the times to remember 

Back to the time
When I was little
Staying out at the lakefront
Amazed by everything that surrounded me
Ice cream, walking, laughing
Memories from my past


  1. I really like that poem, I can just imagine it! I especially like the little fisihes in the murky water part.

  2. Wow, I really liked that piece. It definitely made me think back to my childhood. You also did a really good job with the initial repeating pattern. I really enjoy reading all the poems you have on your blog.

  3. This is a really nice poem written about something from your childhood. It is always good to go back to those moments!!n :)
