Adults tend to express pain
With words but children express pain in
Tears automatically but is effective

Look . . .

Hop! Hop! Hop!
Hopping from mat to mat.
A drop of perspire at forehead;
Fingers brush his hair fringe up
Look cool.

Hop! Hop! Hop!
Hopping from mat to mat.
A drop of perspire at forehead;

Look stylish.

Hop! Hop! Hop!
Hopping from mat to mat.
A drop of perspire at forehead;
Fingers brush his hair fringe up
Look like an adult.

While hopping on his ABC mat, it was his first time to do the above style.

Smoke Out Of Dinosaur’s Mouth

Puff! Puff!
Smoke puffs out of a dinosaur toy.
Oh, it will need water
Or else
It will be on fire.

Run
RUN
RUN to bathroom.
WATER.
Water, water.
Bucket under the tap water
Open the tap water
Then closes it.

Run
RUN
RUN to smoky dinosaur toy.
Pour
POUR
POUR the pail of water onto
The smoky dinosaur toy.
SPLASH!

It will be well now.
Place it onto the floor.
Press its button.
OH! It doesn’t operate anymore.
It doesn’t operate anymore.
It doesn’t operate . . .
It doesn’t . . .
It . . .

My mother in law shared about my husband’s eldest brother when he was young. The above poetry is an inspiration from the actions his eldest brother did to his own toy. In addition, I put myself in his point of view in order to understand him as a toddler. Most of the time, different toddlers are unique and distinct. And most are being misunderstood by the adults and label them who are the naughtiest. Now, my brother in law is an electrician and he can repair any household things.

Is It?

What if . . . ?
What will happen . . . ?
What causes this?
Who causes this?
How this does happens?
Which events trigger such behaviour?
Where to find the solution?
Why?
Why?!
Why?!!
Full of WHYs!

Is it an artist’s questions?
Is it an interrogation?
Is it a toddler’s questions?
Is it a child’s questions?
Is it a teenager’s questions?
Is it an adult’s questions?
Is it an engineer’s questions?
Is it a scientist’s questions?
Is it a life’s questions?

Is life full of questions?
Or
Are we questioning life?

Shopping Toddler

Requesting to carry the shopping bag
Shopping bag of his new clothes
Carrying it like an adult.
Mimicking the adult’s way
Smiling
Grinning
Happy!

After buying two collar T-shirts for my toddler, he requested to carry the plastic bag. The way he carried it looked like a shopping person. Then “shopping toddler” notion came upon because my husband and I only bought those for our son. Our son grows taller and his clothes are lesser.

Cycle

As I observe this world
There is all type of cycle

Cycle of life
From infanthood
to childhood
to teen-hood
to adulthood
to old age
Then return to ashes

Cycle of time
12 o’clock morning to
12 o’clock afternoon
Then back to 12 o’clock morning again

Cycle of days and weeks
Monday
Tuesday
Wednesday
Thursday
Friday
Saturday
Sunday
Then back to Monday again

Cycle of months in a year
January
February
March
April
May
June
July
August
September
October
November
December
Then back to January again

The word, “cycle” inspires my observation about the world. This reminded me of Solomon wrote in the book of Ecclesiastes chapter 1 verse 8 to 10.
