Thank you to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting this week’s collage prompt:

Love it —

Must be more than, 

What Emma simply says, 

When You’re losing, 

Your teeth.

——–

She says, 

Quite clearly, 

And she’s only six-years, 

But she’s wise for —

Her age.

——–

Wisdom, 

Just children have, 

Amaze adults revealing that, 

Love is more than, 

We think.

——-

Complete, 

And comfortable, 

Smiling without teeth ’cause, 

Your friends love you,

For you.

—–

No matter, 

You’re missing teeth, 

And have gapes in your mouth, 

Friends care not, love —

Anyways.

——-

Of all, 

Kids’ memories, 

The best to remember, 

Innocence made.

Without —

——–

Judgement, 

Only fighting, 

Over favourite toys,

Grudges not kept, 

Hands held. 

——

Pets like,

Favourite cats,

Laughing at penguins from, 

Favourite movies loved, 

With Friends.

——-

Second —

Homes, each other’s —

Houses; kids come and go, 

Colouring, 

Painting. 

——–

Spending, 

Childhood doing, 

All the activities kids, 

Should be doing, 

Laughing —

——–

Over, 

Funny things told, 

Not really funny but, 

Giggling stuck, 

Can’t stop.

——-

As kids, 

Laugh at every, 

Age; children’s innocence, 

Refreshing and, 

So kind.

——

Especially, 

When they teach us, 

Lessons like to love anyway, 

Family and friends, 

Anyone.

—–

Kids play, 

Not realizing, 

World’s complicated; let —

Children be free

Always.

    This was delightful Mandi, to me the missing teeth and friends was also like bits of you missing from life’s struggles and those who love you do so because they like who you are.

    Your verse, to me anyway, is in the form of waves. In each stanza, new thoughts wash ashore. And what better action and place to enjoy new thoughts than walking by the water. It’s about the only place I like to be really early in the morning. Thank you, Mandi, for challenging us with the expressed wisdom of children.
