Little Thoughts

Little Thoughts

A Chapter by Wondering Mind

one day her

little footsteps

I followed


this thought that

once came to me


with playful pull

she took me to play


in places

I’ve never seen

nor likely ever be


I met people there

I’ve never known

nor will ever really meet


I’ve been following

little thoughts ever since

looking for the first that went away

Author's Note

Wondering Mind
Every poem has a story.
This one I wrote for my youngest little one when she was 5. It's been over 12 years since.

Lovely nostalgic melancholy!
The more "present" we are at the formation of a memory, the more that will later be recaptured for our enjoyment.
Work to be treasured, WM.
