A Baby Gate Viewpoint

Unaware at first,

I watched my children through bars of a baby gate.

Two little heartbeats that once beat within me

Now play together on the outside.

The bond is certain

and their laughter priceless.

One shade of four and another shade of two.

The curious sponges read a book on an orange sofa;

One as the teacher and the other as  the student.

They jump innocently in glee 

until one complains of being hurt.

Then the other  apologizes and, immediately, they forgive and forget.

This cycle of play continues for a few temporal moments.

Looking up and down to one another,

The two bond

Through frames of my glass lens;

Which exhaled the moments as panels between bars.

  1. How wonderful! Nothing is more beautiful to me than when I see my children playing nicely together and cooperating (too bad it doesn’t happen very often)!! These will be a keepsake to treasure forever! ♥

    • Thanks Holly! Ha don’t worry, these photos were edited to only show the happy ones. I guess that means I’m partially a liar. Haha, but at least they were happily playing together for most of the time. It is the most beautiful thing… to hear and see them laughing together. Doesn’t happen too often in my household either but, being that these two are only 21 months apart, I hope the bonding moments become more frequent. We shall see. Thanks for your comment Holly and I hope you your little loves are doing well! 🙂
