Through the Eyes of a Child

Haiku by Bette A. Stevens, Maine author

When seen through the eyes

Of the children we’re watching

The whole world’s brand new


The haiku, “Through the Eyes of a Child,”  is my response to a #writephoto CHILD writing challenge from author/blogger Sue Vincent at https://scvincent.com/2017/04/27/thursday-photo-prompt-child-writephoto/ I invite you to visit and explore Sue’s blog.

Have a beautiful day and let’s all keep looking at the world through the eyes of the children in our lives—not only the children in our families and neighborhoods, but through the eyes of children in communities around the world—we’re sure to get inspired! ~Bette A. Stevens

  1. I love this and I wholeheartedly agree! We need more childlike wonder in our lives!

  2. This is so true. Oh to allay view life through he eyes of a child.

  3. Well said! I absolutely agree Bette…the world of children is delightfully dauntless! I love to be with them. 🙂 Hugs.

  4. Lovely poem, Bette and so true. That’s been part of the fun of grandparenting – I get to be a kid and see the world anew. 🙂

  5. Delightful response Bette.

  6. I agree, Bette. It’s so important to see the world through the eyes of a child; with awe and wonder.

  7. Lovely, Bette. You and I had a similar idea this week.

  8. Children are so uninhibited. They see things an adult can’t see. It’s as though we’ve grown calluses over our eyes through the years. Seeing through the eyes of a child can be equated to closing your eyes and listening to what’s around you. It’s beautiful.

  9. Such a lovely thought to start my day with. 🙂

  10. Bette, I love this and it is so true – it’s precious to have a chance to see the magic of the world again through the child’s eye! 😀 I remember searching for pebbles on the beach with my son as young and becoming mesmerised by their beauty, colours, shapes…of course, my son had wandered off to paddle or such quite early on in our exploration!

  11. Bless you and keep looking through the eyes of children, the innocent ones.

  12. Lovely, Bette! And so very true. 🙂

  13. Beautiful, Bette… I agree with you whleheartedly too.

  14. Lovely haiku, Bette. I love looking at the world through my little granddaughter’s eyes.
