Through a child’s eyes

Dragon web colour

Fiery balls of unbridled

activity, bouncing

from here to there.

Fluttering minds

drink with excitement

life’s treasurers

as each one unfolds.

Treasure webBounding from playing

to lost in sweet stories

becoming a dragon,

a prince and a knight.

Treasure webSharp breath, drawn in deeply,

each nerve sprung, just waiting

for endings, excitements

enthralling them all.

Treasure webWe trudge through as

grown-ups, weighed

down by our worries

eyes blinkered to beauty,

to nature, to light.

Treasure webTo stop for that moment

to let loose our sparkle

to be as a child

for the gift of their sight.
