With Open Arms

With Open Arms
By John R. Greenwood

With open arms a child came running 
It caught the corner of my eye
Love reached out in all directions and hugged the world 
Pure joy in sneakers exploded on a cobbled street
Such is life when tuned in fine
These breathtaking glimpses 
so fleeting 
pass us by
