Traveling with Children – A Haiku

The Child’s tourist eyes

Whisper such wondrous details

This world seen anew

This haiku was written for Patrick’s Pic and a Word Challenge #217 – Tourist.

My daughter saw this imprint of little foot prints on a sidewalk as we were walking through Paris this summer. As I was pointing out the architecture and ooh-ing and aah-ing at the Parisian ambiance, my daughter had noticed this lovely detail that we would have just walked by. Children do see the world in a different, and often times better, way than adults do. This is what gives me hope in today’s world.

    • I tried looking it up but I couldn’t find anything about its meaning. They were small prints, child size, and we only saw a few more on the sidewalk at street crossings and then they stopped. It’s definitely cool but a mystery!
