Seventies Childhood

Balmy summers

Riding bikes

Endless days

And ice pops


Snow drifts

Hot crumpets

Power cuts

And mitten strings.


Seaside holidays

Penny slots

Rock pools

And jumping waves.


Autumn leaves

Woodland walks

Bonfire nights

And toffee apples.


Building dens

Cloud watching

Hand stands

And water fights.



When the sun shone all summer long

Winter was a crisp, white adventure

And time travelled slowly.

Writing along with February prompt-a-day over at write alm; today’s prompt is ‘mitten strings’
