Life's True Discovery Zones - Poem by Elizabeth Bolden

When an infant first peers into her mother's eyes,
when she finds her feet and hands.
While playing outside, the child finds
a pill bug curled up to hide,
or on a flower, a bee lands.

When meeting a new friend,
or finding something new in an old one.
When the door of sexuality is opened
and two lovers become as one.

When walking through the woods,
a small trail appears with foot-
prints from a fawn.
When staying up all night with
a loved-one just to greet the dawn.

When finding the courage to chase
after a dream,
When following the path of a
well-established stream.
Life is never fully known,
but a lifetime of discovery zones.
