*Poetry and pleasing verses and rhyming words inspire, captivate and entertain everyone, especially our children. Children’s stories are always short and sweet and rhyme at the end. If you think about poetry and rhyming that was our first inspiration as children to want to learn more about nature, animals and other peoples from around the world. Acknowledge the power and the beauty that poetry and rhyming words provide to you and me. The power and reach of poetry extends to our posterity, outliving our differences and springing forward our unity. Our unity will be seen long after we are gone, for many generations to come!
* At the onset of poetic inspiration are genuinely happy or joyful memories that inspire feelings of tranquility, relaxation and contentment. Perhaps happiness abounds for you too when remembering wonderful childhood memories! Do you remember your old neighbors, long, lost relatives or some of your favorite religious, cultural or traditional activities that you engaged as a child? Maybe specific cultural, traditional or athletic or original ways of childhood adventure were part of your childhood experience. Do you remember the name(s) of your neighborhood pet(s), or if you had a pet, do you remember its name? I remember most of the names of our childhood pets, though since there are so many kids and there were so many pets, I am sure that I might forget a few names: Windy-the dog, our rabbits were named- Romeo and Juliet, or was that the birds? Honestly, we had so many pets that I have to admit that I may only remember a dozen names, at best.
I remember a lot of the names of the neighborhood kids that played with us when we kids. They can from many different parts of the state, had different religious beliefs, and more often than not, were not even all from Texas. Children are both accepting and eager to embrace cultural knowledge, diversity and inclusion. I remember going to Sam and Tammy’s house and getting to meet their parents and visit their home. They lived in an apartment, as a child, visiting their home was the first exposure that I had to see apartment living. I thought it was fun! I was fascinated by apartment living! No yard to clean, no dog poop to clean, no laundry to hang outside on the clothesline, no weeds to pull, no leaves to rake, what a wonderful life, I thought. They each had their own bedroom.
Then, I got this really neat idea and asked my dad to move us into an apartment and he replied,” Sure, just remember that we will not have any rabbits, swing sets, slides, mini- bikes, large outdoor toys, trampolines, portable swimming pools, backyard soccer field, drive way basketball court, or any outdoor games. As I thought about what dad said, I slowly decided that apartment living was NOT going to be very fun FOR ME,at all. Because I was the youngest, I was not allowed to play outside alone or unsupervised, or able to go outside at all when my sibling’s were at school. As a matter a fact, it was going to be especially awful for, because I wasn’t allowed to play outside anywhere, unless I was in my own yard, so I quickly scratched the idea of apartment living.
*It was a lot of fun living in an environment that had a lot of people around. We always had one another for playtime and to protect one another. Life was always eventful, you were never alone at home, or ever even alone in your yard without the presence of a dog, or any other kind of animal by your side. I had siblings around me at all times, during my youthful, formative years, until they grew up and cultivated lives and children of their own.
* Childhood days of playing and glorious non-existent responsibility, came with trouble-free malaise. The only childhood malaise that came about was always very seasonal. Yep, it’s that time again! As a kid, about the only time to fret was recognizing daylight savings time: an hour less time to sleep, ushering in the spring season of the year. We all reluctantly recognize the changing of the clocks, it is observed at the stroke of 2:00 A.M- at least here on the east coast of the U.S.: Remember, it’s time to Spring forward and lose an hour of sleep! Daylight Saving’s time is here AGAIN, and it always comes a little bit too early for me every year. Time to rise and shine an hour earlier than what was observed just one day before.
In the Fall or Autumn we will be falling back and again, that is another anxious time for children as they get to play outside one hour less than they could, just the day before. The dates and times of the Fall season changes of course, are between Winter and Spring and Autumn and Winter. In the Autumn, oftentimes called Fall, we will be falling back an hour; extending our evening slumber one hour longer than just the one day before.
These are some of the best memories to entertain when remembering the small, simple concerns of our childhood and youth. When I reminisce, about what I miss the most, I remember missing the consistency of the jovial and peaceful living in a family group and setting. I remember a time when five consecutive days were meant to be spent at school, and weekends were spent at grandma’s, church services, and dinning out for Sunday pancakes,lunch soccer games and barbecue’s and Saturday night movies, popcorn and fried chicken or pizza for dinner. Does anybody miss those days as much as I do? The large time clock on the wall in the family living room held so many secrets that it could probably write some very funny or happy poems of its own.
Children enjoy learning and seek inspiration when writing, rhyming or story-telling. Sometimes students may write stories to keep themselves amused, engaged or simply to fend off boredom. The nostalgia when remembering the biggest dilemmas that we experienced as a kids, is simply humbling.
*A feeling of bliss is in the air as warm feelings abound in the tone or mood of the poet or writer. When a poet feels happy, he wants his mood to consume the tone of the room where he is calmly writing. It is usually first demonstrated during childhood, at the very beginning when writing an inspirational verse, rhyme or in the musical composition of lyrics. Or on occasion, writing inspiration is released from childhood memories of happiness and youthful nonchalance attributed to the days of unfettered childhood memories.
As children grow into adults, they inherit all of the responsibilities and problems that adolescence and adulthood most assuredly bring about, like a Florida thunderstorm in July. As adults, writers seek more or different diversions for writing and decompressing. Writers seek introspective and inspiration through experiences engaged or pursued in nature. Engaging the elements is beneficial for attaining the innocence and inspiration required for the cultivation of writing stories, books, rhymes and songs.
*Share or give attention and gain inspiration by listening to the simple, subtle, natural sounds in nature.
You can gain perspective when you engage musical instruments, joyful songs or verses as a starting point when seeking inspirational assistance to facilitate or aid the writing or artistic process.
Life Inspiration is helpful when writing entertaining, amusing or short passages or verses. Write poetry for yourself first;enjoy reading your hard work first,before you decide to share your artistic creativity with others. Poetry and pleasing verses and rhyming words inspire, captivate and entertain everyone, especially our children. Children’s stories are always short and sweet and rhyme at the end.
*I enjoy learning from you and from others offering me knowledge continuously!~
