Simple Drawing of a Mother’s Love


Baby looking at mother

 

The drawing shows so much

A mother’s pure and gentle touch

an infant fascinated by her mother’s face

no safer space

to be

beyond the womb

warm and full of ecstacy.

Someone discovered their footsie today

How great there’s one more thing

with which to play

Five fat toes

That stretch and wiggle

Must have been funny to see for the first time

Cause all she could do was giggle.

I watched her fascination grow

As she tried to touch her chubby big toe

And when I  sang, “this little piggy.”

She looked at me  as if to say,

” Oh Abuela, that song is so silly.”

At Three Months of Life


At three months of life

you’d think there is not

much to speak of

but when I look into

her baby blues

she tells me it’s true

There is hope!

 

Her curiosity inspires me

to sing again and be happy

just because there is so much more to see

 

At three months of life

you’d think there is not

much to speak of

but you would have to

watch her pay attention

to the reality that surrounds her

no fear

just wonder

and then

she smiles so dear

 

Today my beautiful granddaughter

is three months young

and I have to tell you

I have never ever had so much fun.
