20 Lines A Day

baby thinkingWhat are you doing with that little square thing?

I saw you put my face in there before.

Why does it flash so – what are you doing?

You’re beginning to make my eyes quite sore.

What is that wool thing and can I eat it?

No, don’t wrap me up. I can’t feel my toes.

With too many clothes I’m overheated.

I won’t need a coat like that till it snows.

I’m beginning to dream of when I’m big

and I will be able to speak my mind

and tell you the foods that make me feel sick

and all of the stuff I’ve got on my mind.

But all I can do right now is to dream

And when you get it right, give you a beam.

Writing because I have to, blogging because I like it. Making felt is the day job, but that doesn't stop me writing inside my head! No full length novel published - YET, but several stories for magazines. Wannabe a published author, stylishly minimalist and thin.

  1. This is what my toddler is experiencing, because she is going through, no one understands me………well written……….

    • Thank you. Glad you liked it. I often wonder what goes through the heads of little ones. And most of the time they only see the bottom half of the world. Or they’re pushed out face first into the traffic, parents invisible. It must be very difficult to make sense of it all.
