|Littler versions of ourselves allow us to color our thoughts with their box of assorted crayons, these waxy sticks have bonded many a child and adult into the world of horses and knights...Much to Ponder is told with the softness of the peach crayon, Karen...you should illustrate outlines for coloring books from all that your granddaughter has told you...the Show and Tell coloring book! Be well.

|The best poems come from true experiences and this one is a true delight Karen - "Out of the mouths of babes." I love the stanza:
“I wonder what they are saying, she said,
Probably stuff we don’t know or remember,
But they remember that they have known each other,
When they were knight’s horses,
And fought in wars and all kinds of things.”

|Isn't this just wonderful?
We're so stiff and cynical in our appraisal of things, usually
over-analyzing or questioning someone's motives. And then a child comes along and declares the obvious.
French novelist Marcel Prouste (1872-1922) offered this insight:
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."
Oh, how I wish I could see once again what a child sees!
Thank you for sharing this great story.

|Karen, so much to ponder in "Much to Ponder"! Children and animals, so connected to the Universe, it's the purity of their thoughts and purity of innocence. We certainly do learn from them!
Wonderful poem, I loved reading this to day!
Peace, love, and light,

|Children have a way of bringing adults back to earth and make them see the world through their eyes. O, to be a child again...*Sighhh* Well done, Karen; love it!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D
The last time I rode a horse, I hurt for THREE days, and my legs were stuck straight out sideways! (And the horse wasn't even a big one! LOLOLOLOL) That was pretty interesting, let me tell you! LOL

|As a child I trusted horses and they trusted me, I wonder if as adults we both will feel the same towards each other...

|I so agree with this one as I watch and listen to my grandchildren and marvel as I now have the leisure to watch them grow and learn. My oldest one says the darnest things like asking if
God is in heaven why do we have to look at the floor when we pray...only children have the wisdom to question the world...

|Definitely a new perspective through a child's eyes--and imagination. Your poem also shows how they connect (and learn) through association.|

|We all communicate in one way or another. And youth looks at life free of any preconceived notions and that is why Jesus loved children.|
