This is dedicated to my infant grandson. I see them mostly in photographs and short video clips his parents sent me. And sometimes it seems he is in deep thought.


It’s hard to tell what you are thinking about

all day you are snug in your bed

or being swayed in your mother’s arms

or being fed,


What is it that you think about all day?

What are you beginning to understand?

Are you marveled at the world you see?

Do you have some thoughts about improving it?


What do you think about when you look into your mother’s eyes?

Do you wonder what everyone thinks about you?

Do you know you are so cute?


Thinking is a tedious task sometimes.

But a word to the wise,

Thinking should be done very carefully.

It should always be thoughtful.

Thinking should be purposeful.


You are just a few months old

I would love to know what you think about but,

now it does not matter.


what I want you to know is that

we love you so much

and that we

grandma and grandpa

think about you all the time.
