Collecting
Treasures
As we meander through nature
My three boys
Collecting
Miniature treasures
In which I place within
My pocket

  4. Dana, I love this. I had three boys in three years ... we were best buds, had all sorts of treasure hunting adventures when they were young. Today they are 50, 51 and 52! Where does time go?

    1. I don't know where it goes Helen, but I sure wish I could find out and snatch some of it back!! Thanks!

  5. Very nice and sensitive poem, Dana. What precious times. You are lucky that the treasures can be held in a pocket rather than a wagon or something. LOL.

    1. They don't always fit in my pockets! Sometimes I have to limit the size of the treasures we bring home or I would need a wagon! Thanks Mary!

    1. It's one of my favorite things to do with them! As a child... I would often just wander off alone looking for treasures. I wanted to be an archaeologist badly and would dream of finding awesome treasures never seen before!
