Emerge


It is Week Two of the Weekly Parenting Poetry Workshop by Lauren Wayne over at Hobo Mama. The theme this week was emerge.


emerge


your sweet little eyes
with your innocent mouth

dependent
little being

who are you?

---

growing so quickly
showing us your big feet
and big hands
now four

so proud
of all your achievements

independent
all-ready

emerging

You

  2. "showing us your big hands & feet" <-- I love this line - exactly what toddlers are like! :)

  3. oh, how I love this one! It's nice to be able to really read one poem. I just can't let go of doing one every day...
    I love the use of "all-ready"... love it.

  4. I wrote about my four year old leaving babyhood behind, too. It happened so fast. I don't think I'm over it yet.

  5. Oh, I love the direction you've taken here! These last lines:
    "independent
    all-ready

    emerging

    You"

    I just love that. The whole idea of getting to watch our children unfold and develop before us.
