Poetic Perils: 'Back, When Trees Were Tall'

A photo prompt from Poetic Bloomings:


~Back, When Trees Were Tall~

Come, take me back
To where the time stands still,
Or stretches tall,
Like pines without end

We used to marvel at -
With heads thrown back,
Trying not to fall -
They reached the sky at will,

And sent us flying - dizzy, laughing - down,
Onto the rug of prickles golden-brown.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
