taught again to breathe

there by a twinkling
bring to mind again

long-forgotten inkling
of how life took on
a gilded prospect

of coaxing dreams

in a garden where
now broken petals
reek with sap & scent

here, a-b-c's haven't
ended with x-y-zed's
basics of life relearnt*

Brilliant. If only our brains were as spongy as when we were young.

Are you talking of the dreams of childhood not materialising as hoped?,

Wow, is all I can say. I love this. Especially the ending.
