Little Bud – Prose For Thought

Apologies for last week’s absence with Prose for Thought; I had a bit of a brain block (I think tiredness was catching up with me!) but here I am, back again. This week I have been doing some lovely things with the bubba, and she seems to be learning so much, that this is the inspiration for the poem.

Little Bud

You’re growing so fast

you look different every day

like a little bud

you grow silently so I don’t notice.

Blossoming, blooming

you start to reach out

touching things around you

how did you learn to do that?

Giggling, gurgling, shrieking

they say sound can help you grow

you look all around you, soak up the sun

information like a feed to you.

You wriggle, you squirm,

trying to get higher, to reach the sky

only you know what way you want to go

Little Bud, you’re starting to spread your leaves

and when you smile, it’s like a flower has bloomed.
