The Child

by horngyih

Perhaps the child,
is born with infinite wisdom,
being plucked into existence,
from the ethers of the universe.
As we become more anchored,
to this physical form,
the wisdom of the universe,
dissipates into this reality.

We call this dissipation,
aging, of ‘growing up’,
of becoming realistic,
and in the process,
we lose sight,
and knowledge
of the wonders of the universe,
we were born with.
and lose
the child who sees everything
in this world with wonder.

Perhaps this is so,
not because the child
is seeing things for the first time,
but because the child,
had intimate knowledge,
and connection to the universe,
something we lose,
as we forget,
we call learning.
