Childish Thoughts

Hope fills the air
Instinctive ease
Delightful fair
Delicious treat
Excitement dares

Innocence cares
Nimble and free

Children declare
Heartbeats turn keys
Infinite stare
Lights up the sea
Deep rooted flare
Hugs offer peace
Open to share
Outgoing glee
Divine and rare

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Today I received my copy of Hidden in Childhood: A Poetry Anthology, edited by Gabriela Marie Milton. I am thrilled to have two of my poems included in this amazing anthology, which is now a #1 Amazon best seller. Thank you, Gabriela, and the editing team at Literary Revelations Press for all of your efforts to bring this collection of powerful poems into the hands of readers. So excited to read this wonderful book. I am delighted beyond words. πŸ’•

The above poem is not one of the ones included in the anthology, it was written as a small tribute to the book.πŸ’•

This highly anticipated anthology is available now. You can purchase your copy here.
