Caison riding on his toy car. Photo Credit, my cousin Akua. Enhanced by Me.


a little ball of energy
grows stronger each day
mindful of his surroundings
learning as he goes
what will he teach me now?

he is content with the simple 
things in life
knowing just when to give
you his very best
and when to allow you
to give him yours

a quick push of a toy car
turns into joy unrestrained
inanimate object blares out
music for our ears and we
take a short journey
to the land of make-believe

he laughs and 
bundles of excitement
shoot through my veins
as I watch him dance 
to the music filling
the air

this little miracle makes
everything better
touching the hearts of many
starting with only one

Author’s note: My cousin Akua took one look at this photo and said, “I feel a poem coming on.” And to this, I responded, “Yup. Yaaaasss!” As always, I thank her for allowing me to share him with all of you. Thank you for reading.
