The grass on the lawn has grown,
the warm yet wet winter meant
it never stopped growing
even the roses are in bud,
the forsthia shyly shows
her yellow flower.

I played the piano for over an hour
yesterday, I annotate
and freefall scores while
a ginger ninja plays
with a christmas toy
ringing bells

A walk on the beach
holding the hand of a
not quite thigh high
errant boomerang
as he runs towards
hazards only to be plucked
into the safe arms
of an available so called
grown up

I dance today
a new knee support
and I have discovered
spring again
as I hop over stones
slip and slide
across the lawn
heavy with dew

This is a taste
just a frisson
slightly aromatice
and then
it float on a breeze
up up and away

You write so well of appreciating these ordinary, but very special, moments.

You write beautifully of the rampant joy of having fun with a grandchild! May he or she always provide you with the romping joyous freedom you so eloquently describe here.
