                                      Brenda Bryant


'Look!' she cried,'The water's flowing just as smooth as glass!
We hardly make a ripple on the surface as  we pass!'
And all the while another glass was mirroring her there!
Reflections on the water. Reflections everywhere!



Max was not yet two years old but I was quite astounded
At our communication: it was open, free, unbounded.
Which was really quite amazing, for all he said was 'Ugg!"
Yes, all my little grandson said was 'Ugg!'
Max said ' I'm sorry Grandma; my banana's on the rug!'
He said 'I'd like a drink of milk in my own special mug!'
He said 'My jacket's on too tight; I'll give the zip a tug!'
He said ' Come see my little train and see it go chug-chug!'
He said 'Look at this tiny thing, this pretty little bug!'
He said ' Come out and see my dirt and the great big hole I dug!'
We had long conversations with our smiles and with our eyes.
To be so very, very young and yet so very wise!
And when he said 'I love you, Grandma; can I have a hug?'
I knew exactly what to do when he said 'Ugg!'

The glass is so clean it makes me want to dig out my Windex spray.

Max is a cutie and your poem is precious.

That is my kind of boatride, when you hardly make a ripple in the water.
Lovely shot.

What a cute little grandson you have. He looks so happy and content :)
