childlike eyes

Abram's frog

the zest of life is ignored by so many

a lacking embrace of world around

overlooking the simple joys of created wonders

while the marvelous touches of His hand abound

still we march along without taking notice

perhaps seeing and hearing but the details are missed

hurrying about from one good thing to another

somehow never too busy to merely exist

one look at my children and i regain what is lost

seeing through their eyes, my curiosity is renewed

their unrestrained joy is gratefully contagious

i can’t help but smile…  how about you?
