Looking into your eyes
full of love and surprise
how you love to smile
giggle at the thought of
endless tickles.
You pretend to drink water
it’s soap, you say
so you pour it on your head
splash like Ariel
pretend to eat Fruit Loops in the bubbles
you sit in the soup
pretend it is a swing
you are swimming in the ocean now
then it becomes a pool
suddenly it is a skating rink
it is a potty now
a bowl
I hear a giggle,
I ate the soup, you say.
How I love the way your mind works
you see so much in a nesting cup
while all I see is a nesting cup
because of you in the bath
I see things differently now
trying to imagine it all
and smile at your visions
of so many creations.
