    Sssshhhhhh stop and listen sometimes
    To the whisper of a child
    If you are very still you can catch
    Imagination’s fantasies
    Realized in the whispers of a child
    Laughter bubbling over
    At the delight in their wisdom
    Timeless secrets locked away
    Forever hidden in the soul of the innocents
    Phantasmal wonders floating
    In and around the arches of rainbows
    Twisting and turning
    This way and that
    Thoughts, ideas, inventions of tomorrow
    Whispered in each others auditory canals
    Far far away from the cynical adults
    As they pass by with a warning glance and a chiding remark
    If only we took the time
    To stop and listen
    See with our inner child’s third eye
    To the children’s whispers
    Love
    Laughter
    Happiness
    Peace eternal
    Lay deep within
    The children’s whispers ……..

    this is beautiful...
    there is nothing more delightful to see...more rewarding to watch..or more wonderful to be in the presence of, then the innnocence of a child....
    so sweet, so precious, so full of life, are the children...

    How true........

    Out of the mouths of babes.......we should all sometimes see thru the eyes of a child, it is magical. I like this one Natasha, very nicely written. :toast:

    Natasha

    This poem is the absolute reason why I strive to keep the "little girl" in me alive. She is my connection to the real world and to God. We all must come to Him as a little child in order to enjoy and cope with life.

    Natasha...this poem is so beautiful. It touched the little girl in me.

    Keep flowin, my sistah...keep flowin.
