Como se dice? #dpchallenge #poetry #children


child's hand

 

How do you say… “shoe”?

Zapato

naturally we both point at our feet

under the table

the four-year old and me

*

How do you say… “smile”?

Sonrisa

the white teeth in upturned lips

fill the boy’s small face

a giggle slips

*

¿Como se dice… “hug”?

Abrazo

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”?

Estar Contento

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

for that!

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

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks Ranu. I am learning spanish from a 4 year old – just my speed. I learned Como se dice years ago. I have many singular words in my spanish vocabulary – sentences for another day.
