The wonder of a boy
Seeing a new path, look up

This great natural world, stopping
In his tracks, skidding

To a halt, questions brimming
Wondering away, asking

Listening, learning today
His eyes open his heart

Pumping in sync
With his other mother

The beautiful Earth, this moment
Passes quickly but not before

His body tenses with his breath
Then deeply unfolds, tonight

He will dream of great giants
Standing guard over this forest

Hidden from most, I am
So grateful to share these views

With him to marvel, together
At the grandness

Of the trees
And his dreams

**It is Monochrome Madness time again. I highly recommend checking out Leanne Cole and Laura Macky’s collaboration. Each week the collection of black and white images is wonderful.
