Summer of His Fourteenth Year Poem

Summer of His Fourteenth Year

He felt the sun,
its warm hand
guiding his strides
down the dusty lane.

He tossed rocks
into the river,
each splash a question
of who he might be.

Friends laughed
louder than crows,
tales spun from
freshly mowed fields.

Nights whispered secrets
through cricket songs,
stars blinking
in Morse code.

His shoes hung,
laces untied,
from the porch rail—
a flag of truce
between boy and beyond.

He grew—not just taller,
but into new skin,
raw and wondering,
ready for tomorrow.
