Tiny hands awaiting greatness




Grasping,
reaching,
touching.
Hands,
you discovered your hands.
You joined them in a dance,
then let them fall to your sides
like leaves in a free fall.
You tug with eagerness
at your colorful toy.
You coo to it and to me.
Red, orange, green, polka dots, and stripes,
make your eyes light up.
Your lips purse together,
bubbles escape them.
I watch with delight,
as if for the first time
watching a miracle.
You choreograph with your fingers
a dance of discovery and beauty.

  10. One of the most beautiful things is to witness babies becoming aware of what they can do. What a joy all our babies are...they are still pleasing me now they are in their 40's and 50's!
