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.
