"Oh Mom! What is that across the street?"
yelled over her shoulder
as she runs to the curb.
She knows not to cross the road without permission.
With a glance out the window
I recognize that I need a glance out the door
to get closer
to the mysterious find of hers
"I believe it is a fungus;
from the mushroom family,
but with a closer inspection
we will certainly more see."
Crossing over to inspect
Through camera lens and her eyes
I am drawn back to nature
with wonder at the form and mystery of life.
I really am constantly bowled over by the view
of the world through my daughters eyes.
Just breath-taking and beautiful.
Thank you doesn't do justice to what they offer me.
