Child Eyes

Your eyes glean
A childlike curiosity
Flickering and dancing
Like a firefly beholding light
In ecstasy
Of the thing you possess
With child eyes

The whole world to see with a child's eyes. Great topic for a poem. Love the firefly reference.

"A Child Eyes" I see my little great grand son's
face and the glean in his eyes. You captured the beauty of innocence.
