How do you say… “shoe”?
naturally we both point at our feet
under the table
the four-year old and me
How do you say… “smile”?
the white teeth in upturned lips
fill the boy’s small face
a giggle slips
¿Como se dice… “hug”?
little arms reach up
wrap around my neck
as I bend in half
How do you say…It’s been a bit too long?
since I’ve felt little boy hugs
akin to puppy dog tails
wagging with happy energy
¿Como se dice… “content”?
blue-gray eyes radiate a glow
knowing that one moment spent with a child
causes my invisible tail to wag
there’s really no translation
The DP writing Challenge today is Back to Life. What revives you after a hard week, long flight, tough situation???
A big abrazo to Gideon for his smiles
