Warm embrace of kidhood

Tiny hands fumbling,
Contouring cursives.
Tiny feet staggering,
Spanning corridor.
His babble,
Seldom making sense.
And now
Confident hands
Arranging bookshelves.
Confident strides
Shifting furniture.
Occasionally nuggets of wisdom
In complete innocence.
His hearty embrace unchanged.
He comes running for one now.

  1. This made me get a little teary, and I had to ask my son for a hug. I guess that it is a Mom thing?

    Happy New Year!
