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

    • I know, Michelle…best view ever! Children are treasures and how blessed we are to be able to see the world anew though their eyes–giving us perfected vision and bountiful blessings! Blessings & love… 🙂 <3 xo

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

  3. Reblogged this on Sue Vincent's Daily Echo.

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

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

  6. 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!

    • The wonder of it all, Annika! How very blessed we are to be so enriched by the young lives around us… Blessings & love! 🙂 <3

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

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

    • We did, Robbie. Your poem from a child’s perspective was wonderful and it inspired me to join the challenge. Blessings and love! <3

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

  11. Delightful response Bette.

  12. 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. 🙂

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

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

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

Thanks so much for stopping by to join the conversation.
