A Child’s Wonder…

The Mystery of the world

The Mystery of the world

I created this picture for a facebook update,

But the story behind it I shall now relate:

That’s my boy, scampering carefree

Nothing but joy in him as you can see

Running off and running around,

No fear as he journeys in woodland abound.

My Running Wolf at the head of his pack

Experiencing, just experiencing, only that

As he touches each tree and tramps the ground

And laughs, looking at us, with eyes so round

Loving this freedom, this new discovery

Of life, of wonder of new things he can see.

When did we, these adult lives

Lose that wonder, that beauty of surprise?

When did we stop seeing Life all around

As nothing but a child’s Playground?

    this is such a good post…
    a reminder that imagination is the magick to keep us young …
    to see through their eyes teaches us unconditional love…
    Take Care…

  3. Sometimes I guess time served us different phases, making the games and words of our childhood years look different and “naive.” But truly, that’s when freedom and other beauties of life are at their fullest.

    Great post 🙂

  4. Powerful words. I think you might enjoy this book I am reading, “The Goodness of Rain: Developing an Ecological Identity in Young Children” by Ann Pelo. My intent was to read it and pass it on to a friend but I think I will read it again before I do – I am loving it that much!

  6. We stopped seeing the world as a child’s playground since we gradually stopped doing things we loved. We call that part of responsibility, while in fact, we can do what we love and be responsible at the same time. I like to think of myself as a child because I don’t do things I don’t love 🙂
