A live once lived

Once I danced free as courting linnets,
my feet and body a beat free of danger.
A stick ran along an awning,
a distant tune strayed
called me into the street.
As I danced,
gloom fall away
making joy, the sun of my life.

Innocent days, when love
shouted to be the answer.
Now my body sensible and fragile
watches the children strive
hiding behind my smile.
the stormy weather waiting to conquer.

This blog was inspired by First 50 words where you freewrite from a single word prompt. I use random words or images to create flash fiction in formats ranging from twitter postcards to short short stories.
