Observations of an Octogenarian

Eye Spy

on August 8, 2015

Dreary airport sounds.
Calls to flights and cancellations
Conversations cell phone drone
Weariness pervades my bones.

People-watching changes scene.
Dramas large and small
Engage me with human race
Bringing smiles to my face.

Seeing families deplane
I spy a little boy
Following his mom and dad
Two smaller sisters in their arms.

His four-year-old self, I gage
All seriousness and firm endeavor
Pulling his own roller bag
Spider Man his hero buddy.

My heart filling to brim
I could not stop my face’s beam
Suddenly he turned his head
Shyly smiling back at me.

    You have a great facility for description that brings a smile to my inner four-year-old

    Ah yes, I can see that little one taking life so seriously in his tiny roller suitcase. Lovely!!

  3. People watching can enliven any type of waiting – I can picture the little boy with his case πŸ™‚

    Nothing quite like seeing joy to help spread it ~ just coming off a lot of travel myself, your thoughts here should be what all travelers carry along.

  5. Ohhhh, this is one in place for one of your best. You captured such a determined, adorable young spirit with this one. I also feel you very strongly here.

    Yes, he brought joy to me . As the mother of three sons and grandmother of four I have a special place in my heart for little boys. I am grateful that you hear my feelings speaking through my words.
