What I remembered about that day

is the freshwater hitting my tanned skin

the current of the river pushing against me

sand flying everywhere as the boys play soccer

Walking back home just to go out and play again

Hearing the laughter of all the neighborhood kids

And the joy I felt at the end of the day 

 

Nothing about the busy city life

Nothing about my family back home


The author's comments:

This poem is a memory poem of the time I went to visit family at El Salvador. It's one of my happiest memories, when times were simpler and less dangerous over there.
