Everyone has at sometime or another gone on a trip.
They watch as the towns slip by, seeing much of nothing.
Some take pictures of their trip, and place them in a book.
Others just pass on by, like a fish on a hook.
Some claim that they “felt this warmth, this comforting touch.”
Even though this town they pass through, was really nothing much.
So, what do these towns these places have?
Can you take a picture of the feeling you received?
How many times do you really look at that which is placed in a book?
Have you ever laid down on the ground,
and watch the clouds form pictures in the sky.
Do you remember a colorful sunset?
Can you see the joy in a child’s eyes,
as they watch the fluttering of a thousand butterflies?
Or listen to a child as they say their prayers at night.
They can take you to a world that is all their own.
Ask a child their inner most thoughts.
Again they can take you to a world that only they can see.
Sighting seeing is not about leaving your home.
Your town or your state.
Sight seeing is about that which is in your heart.
About seeing where God can take you through the eyes of a child.

Lovely thoughts and words. You might want to separate into stanzas, with this one or any more beautiful poems you write.
