Child’s Play

Child’s Play
play with the children
come join in their world
what makes them happy
is contagious
playing with water
one of their favourite games
and they don’t even consider
its many forms all have names
to bathe/swim in the liquids
to have imaginary games
pouring water as tea
reality reframed
given an ice cube
fascinated how it melts
skating on a frozen puddle
and how its coldness is felt
then watching the vapour
they blow out on a cold day
or the steam drifting off
a hot mug enjoyed
as they play
the wonder
of everything
finding new ways
to experience
their world
wanting to play
