Circle of Life

lurking behind
four year old eyes,
an old soul –
ancestors drift
on the wings of time

  1. I often see babies in prams looking at the world with thought and wisdom far beyond their few months. I was also a Secondary teacher for many years and sometimes teenage kids had the outlook of an older adult.


    • The thing that sometimes get me thinking out loud is when they look at you. Full eye contact, unblinking, unflinching for a long time! Like they’re seeing into your soul. At the end of that they will either come to you, or they won’t. Decision about your character made. Like only an old soul can😊
