A first time

A first time.

Inquisitive as a child,
free minded
from safe vantage,
the shadows hold no dread
for there are no serpents here.
Chance a glance,
safe without, peer within.
There are only calves within this barn
their youthful curiosity a mirror image
of your enquiring eyes.
O to share that novelty of your glimpses,
the slow revealing from each peek
each footstep in the province of unknowing.
O to see, with widening child-eyes,
the special in the mundane
and the peculiar freshness
of a first time.

How had I missed this one? Oh, the photo and the verse you wrote PROVE how good God is to leave us children, time and again, always reminding us to wonder! And safety; the mind of a child is inherently safe in receiving all the wonder of God.
