Portraits Poetry Series #22: The Beauty of Innocence

Portraits Series
There is beauty
in the innocence
of nature
beauty –
in the innocence
of the young
and all gets lost
in retrospect.
No longer unaware
of the ways of the world
we go on
indifferent to the beauty
of a summer’s day
unaware of the sounds
of life that creeps
within the shadows
of tall grasses
we lose ourselves
a missing puzzle piece
one among many
we lose
our belief in others
belief in ourselves
and we struggle
and thrash
against the very beauty
that we seek.
We refuse to see
open our eyes
we must learn to listen
to the songs of our own hearts
to believe –
to strive like fields of flowers
aching to reach toward the warmth of sun
and expect no less.
For innocence
in nature
and innocence
in a growing child
garners more wisdom
than unlaid dreams.
