I've been thinking about how some people can recall things from when they were toddlers while I can remember only things from after I started kindergarten. I'm curious to see what your earliest memories are.

At The Local Precinct (age 1yr)👶🏻

( a haiku renga )  

endless stretch of street
noonday sun on cut green grass  
my first walk alone  
 
•🌿👶🏻🌱•  
 
two nice men in black  
stop in a big black and white  
one lifts me — Daddy?  
 
•🌿👶🏻🌱•  
 
a young officer  
feeds me from a pudding cup  
Mom bursts in, I laugh

1970

Vietnam still raged;
Fireworks triggered air-raid
sirens in Italy.

False alarm , but still...
I hid beneath the bed, scared,
awaiting our fate.

On His 20th Month

Fearful of father,
crawls under bed covers, nests
up mother's belly...

DANGLING LEAFROLLER

On papa's shoulders
near the cows and blackberries—
is that worm floating?

Two

Glass ashtray unfurls;  
the Moon riffs on the Dark Side.
Dad's owl is watching.

Fish Kill

I was two years old,
A Lake Michigan Fish Kill,
I was terrified!

In Yellow

I was five years old
I saw her getting ready
Mom was in yellow

And her jet black hair
Cascaded on her shoulders
Mom was full of youth

Congratulations, Jade!

You sit well upon your rock and the howling winds and pelting rains cannot crumble your stronghold.

That was a great showing.

Sincerely
