Eyes of youth

Become – Drawing from Shelby

From baby to child,

From child to teen;

Oh how they grow;

They never stop wondering

Through their eyes so keen.

What is in the eyes of youth?

It’s Okay – Drawing from Shelby

It’s beauty, it’s hope, it’s love.

How we shape them, depends on us;

Or, cause them to withdraw and remove,

We may not know.

Dance – Drawing by Shelby

Shelby the youthful one – long, flowing hair,

With love, energy and blessing from above;

She draws, creates, learning to become,

Young woman of beauty, aspirations, love.

Free to be Me – Drawing by Shelby

We dream for them, encourage them, guide them,

Not just let them wonder of life,

They form and glow, like a shining gem.

We do what we can, to slow the strife.

Vision Beyond – Drawing by Shelby

We behold little things they do,

Praising, lifting spirits high,

You can do it, we know you can,

What a lovely drawing, through mind’s eye.


Blessings along the Way!

  1. What a beautifully unique blog post! Shelby’s art is heart-warming, as is the love her grandfather has for her as expressed through his words.

    May we never stop learning, as long as we are camped out in these tents of flesh!
