“A Passion Play” by L. K. Thayer

we twirled and we danced

she led, I followed as best I could

as memories burst forth

from childhood

in the days that turned into mirrors

when life was full of innocence

of daisy chains & training bras

hopscotch & hula hoops

can we ever recall the steps

that have been

erased by worn out saddle shoes

can we embrace

how nothing mattered

& everyday

was a passion play
