playfulness stifled

inner child hushed

bah humbug my little me

tis time to be a grownup

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, An Inner Child Is “the childlike usually hidden part of a person’s personality that is characterized by playfulness, spontaneity, and creativity usually accompanied by anger, hurt, and fear attributable to childhood experiences.

The Saturday Symphony #29 Inner Child #JuneEdition


This month indulge your inner child. Be goofy, be fun, be whiny. Rhyme, share or compose a favourite bedtime story, tongue twister, song. Tell tales of pets, old toys and forgotten delights. Just be playful and have fun. – Jude

You can use art, any form of writing or media.

  1. I didn’t see the movie Patch Adams but did some research. That’s a wonderful gesture that he and his volunteers bring humor to those in need. A good example of using one’s inner child to help others. Thank you for your comment.


    1. Thank you so much for replying my comment. Try to make time to search and watch the movie. It will be worth it.

  3. Children want to be grown ups, I know I did. Then when the day comes and you realize you are a grown up it’s quite a disappointment. At least it was for me.


  4. Every time I create something I thank my ‘Inner child!’
    I had fun with Jude’s prompt smashing it with Sadje’s 😀


  5. I am somewhat lucky, l guess,
    … to have an inner mischevious playfulness,
    My inner child,
    Always somewhat wild,
    Is always keen to land me in a mess!
    Of course, not everyone is best pleased,
    .. when the inner me is squeezed,
    Alas, what can one say,
    Ooooh l know, all sneaky’s aside,
    To Eugenia, Happy Birthday!
    I bet you thought l was going to let it slide,
    But no! Of course not. What do you take me for?
    … a bah humbug imp?
    A frightful ageist bore?
    No, never not l, never one to skimp,
    On a bit of a joke,
    ….. a teasing and playful leg pull,
    I am not that kind of bloke,
    So here l say again,
    Happy Birthday, Little Being Eugi,
    Have you had cake and champagne?
    … to celebrate turning thirty 🙂


    1. A truly delightful poem, Rory! Thank you for letting my Little Being be at least thirty! lol Sometimes, I think my inner child is more like a giggly teenager. No cake and champagne, however, treating myself to chocolate and red wine.


  6. Gorgeous and so delightful to read. loved the ballerina lightbulb too. Excellent work on the prompt, Eugi.
