A sense of wonder

NaBloPoMo 2021. Do Good Kid

Being exposed to all the ills in this world

It’s just too easy to become cynical

To look at everything through a pragmatic lens

To never allow yourself to experience

Wonder, amazement, to feel awestruck

To never attribute anything to sheer luck..

While being pragmatic has its merits, no doubt

Too much emphasis on practicality you could do without

Once in a while allow yourself to

Immerse your soul in the beauty of life too..


Chase shooting stars, rainbows, auroras galore

Bathe your senses in moonlight like never before

Look at the clouds on a mountain floating away

Wax poetic on seeing the fiery sunset today..

When (rarely) the world seems to conspire

To make things go right, fulfill your desires

Just celebrate it as a magical event

Not rationalize how and why it happened

When miracles seem to fix broken situations

Think of them as such, not look for logical explanations


The universe is vast beyond our imagination collective

To live with a sense of wonder is the most fulfilling way to live

Sometimes we need to believe in fairy tales

To make sense of the senseless suffering that prevails..
