Gone Idle

Have you ever paused by a sunny window and gone idle?

Thought of a long-dead dog and warm, dirty days?
Of fun so hard there was black sand on the back of your neck?
Of snapping, playful jaws?
Of running and falling and laughing?

Have you ever blinked awake after five minutes and realized with sadness and joy that you had a happy childhood?
