and of course smells.
Drifting around on a warm spring day.
People milling about, faces pressed against glass
Dark shadows glide by.
"Otter mommy" squeals one girl.
"I see him" another child cries.
Even smaller ones wander about.
Toddler hands waving at wobbling water.
We took my 15 month old to the zoo the weekend before last. She watched some of the animals but was more interested in everything else going on around her. Our zoo is pretty cool with some of the water stuff that you can see from below the water level in indoor viewing areas. http://www.senecaparkzoo.org/
winding around legs
Colors within pattern
A story told
he met her
she liked him
Growing old together
becoming young again
tales wild and strange
Yes, catch up time for the two last posts for A to Z. Last week got busy, so here they are.

Shape not defined
Water flowing over rocks
Tumbling twirling misting
Falling into pools and ponds
Light warming trees
Bathing the world in color
Energy driving toddler
Little legs pumping in exploration
Running roaming starting stopping.
Squat down to poke
At leaf trembling on ground
Next to puddle of water.
Had no idea what to write today so I googled words that start with X.

A sign once said:
"Dance is the only art
In which we are the media"
True as that may be
Any art has self as main force.
The writer uses words
Words from the soul
Words from our core
Poured onto the page
But thought out. Planned. Revised.

I vow to you daughter of mine
To be there in good times and tough times
When you are well, and when you are sick.
When you are giggling happily with glee
When your face is scrunched with tears
When we are awake during the day
When you need me during the depths of night
I make this promise to you, daughter of mine
I know your needs will be many
And I will have to arrange around them wants of mine
But joy and love you bring
Daughter of mine
In the deapths of the night
In the light of day
Your many moods, our many joys
Excited in your new skills.
Adults make vows to each other, but what about to a baby, a totally dependent human being? That got me thinking about writing something like this.

Facts that have been learned
Points of data previously not known
A challenge occurs
Facts not remembered
Lesson not learned
Facts put to use
In a different way even
Knowledge becomes understanding
Ya, random poem of random.

High scoring scrabble letter
don’t know what to do
most times you need your friend U
Even words with W
I could have looked up Q words to see what fit, but this was fun.
I'm still thinking of the car post. It may be more of a random musing v an actual poem.
