Imitate Push Up

With feet rested onto mattress
Two hands on floor; inhaling, exhaling heavily
Head rolls up and down.

Upon entering my dad’s room, my toddler imitated my dad who was doing push up. This birthed out the above haiku. It is a very funny sight.

Toddler reaching 2 Years Old

Touching the table
Tapping the table
Smacking the table loudly

Leaning against the wall
Leaning against the table
Causing it to creak and slide backward
Leaning against the opened door
And almost fall

Let me go and off
Climbing the window grill
Climbing up and down
Climbing left and right
As I watch in fear
In fear of his safety
But burst of laughter
Is his response to me

Pushing the chair to the door
Climbing the chair
Hand reaching to the door knob
And the door is opened
Grinning upon accomplishing it
Leaping from the chair
And run to my embrace
Astonished by his action.

Running around the living room
Running around the bed side
Running around the library
Running around the mall
Observing a twirling spectacle display
Spinning round and round while holding my hand

Upon reaching home
Kicks in the air
Swinging his legs in the air
And off the sandals out of his feet
One drop onto my head
One landed my spouse’s face

Knocking grandma’s room door
Wanting to enter her room
No response
Banging the door
The door is opened
Enter her room swiftly
Press the door lock at the knob
But, he can’t unlock due to his height

Before sleep
In the cot
Twirl his body
A somersault occurs

Finally, the active baby
Falls asleep in the
Small lit room
With music.

Oh, I am in peace.
Peace has returned to the house.
Everyone is at peace.
A peaceful atmosphere.

An observation of my active toddler who is going to reach two years old, the above inspiration is birthed out and penned down. In the paragraph “Upon reaching home”, his sandals drop onto the floor. Though I depict it landed onto my head and my husband’s face, it occurs in the realm of my imagination in order to make it funnier.

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.
