Seven Ways of Looking at a Child

by Deanna Lopez

I.      The sticky popsicle’s stick
         Stuck to his forehead
         Popsicle all down his shirt
         Snack time wonderful stanza!

II.     In the yard
         Oh no the garden
         Scattered flowers
         Mud pies for lunch wonderful

III.   What fun
         Flour flying, milk dripping
         Egg shells in every bite
         Next year store bought
         Birthday cake

IV.   White laundry
         Red lipstick
         Pink giggles
         Laundry helper great

V.     Rainbow of colors
         Beautiful mural
         On the fluffy white cat
         Finger-painting

VI.    Bubbles everywhere
         Stuffed animals dripping
         Linoleum replaced by lake
         Bath time

VII.  Asleep
         Peaceful
         Angelic
         Perfect
         Bedtime
