lullaby lines

Sleeping on Grandpa (photo by RK House)

with little Ellie asleep on my chest
and my laptop balanced precariously on my knee
I slowly and oh so carefully type with one hand
and try to write some of my simple poetry

snippets of my life and experiences
boiled down into just a few words and rhymes
until she suddenly sneezes and wakes up crying
and I lovingly rock her and sing a few lullaby lines

      I actually took the picture a month or so ago and have been meaning to write a little poem to post with it. Every moment with this little sweetie is precious to me, of course!

    Awww! Sweet. The poem isn’t bad either. Smile.

      Thanks! She is a really sweet baby. At times, she reminds me of my two little ones. πŸ™‚
