He Is Dangling Like A Koala

Armpits and Hands on tabletop
Legs clutch onto table legs
Saying
I’m like a koala.

He is imitating
He is mimicking
He is copying
He is implying
He is dangling
Dangling like a koala.

After The End Of The Day

After the mid of the day
The sun wave goodbye
The moon takes over.

After the end of the day
The tidied table turns into
Messy table.
A table filled with toys.

After the end of the day
The neat floor turns into
Messy floor.
Floor covered with torn papers and toys.

After the end of the day
He needs to tidy his toys;
He needs to throw papers to recycle bin;
He brushes his teeth;
He changes to pyjamas;
He travels to a dream world
With a smile during sleep.

Little Manager

Dry your hair.
Sit here.
Play with me.

Take this.
For you.

Mum carries the groceries;
Dad carries me.

[Offering Grand-Uncle a cup of tea]
[Waited for him to finish sipping]
[Wear him his cap then wear mine]
Please accompany me to playground.

[Pull uncle’s hand]
Sit on the floor.
Let’s play Lego.

During dinner, my toddler told me to dry my hair because of wet hair after shower. Knowing my limitation not being able to carry him, he suggested me to carry the groceries so that his dad can carry him. My husband answered him that his hands were full while I held his hand. My cousin who stayed a few nights in my house were requested to accompany him to play and even bring his playground. The above inspirations are written from his voice and point of view.

Whenever during mealtime, my son will smell his food. He even loves to smell at almost anything.

My toddler was imitating his dad’s actions and words when they were standing on the escalator. Then he repeated his words as an excuse to remain in his hug. He did not want his shoes to stand on dust.

Peeping Toddler

Suddenly popping out his head
Like a turtle; peeking at the flowers
Surroundings then declaring his house.

As I walked home with my son in my husband’s arms, he suddenly peeped at a nearby condominium. He was observing the flowers, plants and buildings. Out of the blue, he declared that the condominium was his house. Finally, he replied that it was not his house.

“Popping out his head across the fence” was the first words came to me. But I choose to express it in haiku rather than free verse. I want to limit my words limitation as a challenge to improve my creative writing.
