Oh...I feel sorry for the child here, so unwanted!
Mary, don't you weep. Time changes us all
Oops..! This is heart-breaking for the child..! Beautifully executed :)xoxo
We realize the loss much later
I enjoyed reading this and thinking about its meaning. Time does indeed change us all though we cannot go back.
We sure can't, Peggy, but what if we could, for just a day?
I love that she has wings, to take her to a happier place!
Time will only tell
I agree with Sherry...the saving grace for this child are her wings...
Yes! Thank you
Ah yes, we can't return.
Growing up is painful... But childhood fairies never come back.
But she must , when the circle is complete
In a word, intriguing.
It's a sad day, when our wings lie flat...Pearl
love the images!
Another good one :-)ZQ
ouch..good she has wings to soar above the turmoil..
Bittersweet is perhaps what came to mind. Written fantastically.
Cleverly done. Oh if only we could recapture childhood...Anna :o]
Oh! Yes! Love it! Can't fight with time, not if you mind it. Hehehe.
A harsh reality to many experience.
Love your word choice for the first four lines.
Sweet, I hear those school bells too!
Silly but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
