A dazzling display

When a child finds the wonder of starlight

Her eyes bedazzled by the sparkling lights

The joy on her face is a beauty to witness

Makes you believe once again in the power

Of the unseen , of the uncomprehendable

That we surely can see but never tire of wondering about!

  1. Would be so wonderful to be able to see through the eyes of a child again…what joy they can find in the most mundane situations. Why did we have to grow out of that? Beautifully written, Sadje!

  2. A lovely piece. Sadje, I realized one of the ways to truly appreciate art (like writing a poem from a picture prompt ) is to write down the first fresh impressions created on the mind. Now, lots of fresh impressions occur to the mind of a child. If children wrote poetry and novels, I think we would be reading some of the greatest pieces in human history.

    I love this post. A thought-provoking post. Brilliant.

    1. Thank you so much Benjamin. I think I composed poems in my head when I was young. Children do have wonderful imagination, it’s the words they still haven’t acquired
