Enlightenment's Aspiration

Enlightenment's Aspiration

A Poem by Paloma

To aptly define innocence within 

the countenance of a child's smile

& affection's inspiration in wildflowers,

conceive infinity 'pon ocean's eminence

whilst summer breezes glance splendor

flourishing jasmine and hummingbirds

amidst everlasting expansive sunrises,

whence space and time cease to exist 

thereupon shall be aspired enlightenment

Such an inspirational write. Enlightenment....we all strive towards that, don't we? Whether it is in the child's smile or in the beauty provided by Mother Nature, we know it when we achieve it. Just one small edit, in line 8, "ceases" should be "cease" to agree with the plural subject. Lydi**

Anything which can inspire us to look "within" is noble. And can be a source of enlightenment. Simply superb.

I felt such a warmth and wonder as I read your words, of innocence and enlightenment and summer's sweet splendor. Beautifully warm and lifting.

Defining "innocence" by ANY action is a difficult quest ...the "countenance" of a child's smile needs take into account the actions preceding and proceeding from it. And yet innocence IS a perception afterall.
