Looking closer, wider.

If the world is as our perpectives, then there are indeed as many worlds are there are people. Looking at pictures of children reminds me of the children, the untainted innocents. Both in the world, and of the world inhabited by them.

First the ability to see without judgement,
then the gift of seeing, always, for the first time
not an as if, but an ever renewed wonder,

and finally, perhaps, the skill of invigoration through the very act of seeing.

The next generation unfolds to remind the tired and numbed.
One of many: the use and gift of our sight,
unencumbered by prejudice,
freed from dulled expectations,
taking in life as it takes in.

to look into his eyes
is to take on his world. and all that is within and without suddenly jars with yours.
knocked off your crusted stance
one breathes, fleetingly, the air of his world.

[germany. by santiago mostyn]
