senryu of childhood

dreaming of princes
in a most childish state

crayons stuffed in holes
garden filled with many toys
children live inside

birth of prophecy
childhood Armagedon
rank hysteria

those childhood friends
lost for several decades
link to each other

end of childhood
complicated histories
professional poetics


Written for:

Prompt #110 – Childhood

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

    Childhood is a complicated affair from beginning to end–and beyond!

  4. “End of childhood/complicated histories.” This says a lot about how we fall away from one another… and how some folks are joined for life by their childhoods. I have both in my life! I’m sure you do, too. Thanks, Z. Peace, Amy

  5. So creative. What an imaginative childhood. Nicely written.
