compounded fun

so you want to splash in the water?
proof that your heart is still a child
like dear granddaughter’s young age
less concerned if people might watch
man, it feels free to ride high in a swing
set on a flying seat pumping warm air
born(e) for this, another glad-gifted day
time to spend with children at play
ground covered with dandelions’ sun
dance around each blooming flower
bed welcomes you after noon of fun!


A dVerse prompt by Lillian to use compound words in a poem but separate them (eg. split at line breaks). I used 11 compound words 🙂

    Geez, I thought I had done well to incorporate just two, but you’ve mastered this one for sure. I could never. Awesome.

    Yes I want to splash. Love your poem. The compounds went unnoticed until I checked out the rules and word list. Then I got it and wow— was wowed. Great fun write. Thanks for sharing. XoXo
