Children Creative Spirit

~ The Child's Creative Spirit ~
By Don Iannone

Nothing comes close
to a child's love to create
from that magical well within.
No imagination can reach
as far or deep as the child's inner eye,
when consumed totally...
by whatever the moment holds.
Each stroke of the brush,
every word written,
and every smile cast--
all unadulterated symphonies
echoing in the soul's sky blue waters.
Is it any wonder
that we cry when we grow old,
and slip into our child-like dreams
to bring us joy and comfort?

Dedicated to the children in
Oman's Sultan Qaboos University Hospital.

Its crayons that I like
Painting rainbow skies
I can swim in watercolors
Color splash beyond my room
Blowing bubbles in shining colors
Mixed with giggles and laughter
And my trees are drawn
Not only in brown and green
I'm painting a bright new world

Nasra Al Adawi

How lovely. We have had projects like this. I like them only because they are colorful. Children have no restrictions when they use colors!

I like your colorful poem too, Nasra. :)

Children tend to be wiser than adults because they don't think they know that much...

Just a short note to thank you so much for the two copies of the calendar. It is a lovely piece of work. Congratulations. And thank you for including my poem. I’m honored.

We have 18 inches of snow in Cleveland!
