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
