A first time.
Inquisitive as a child,
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.
