Sweet fine features
quiet movements with flowers
and water in his pool
parents who love and protect him

grandparents living on opposite ends
of the earth
language and cultural barriers
his youth does not know yet

we will see him soon and
hear strange words uttered
“dah eta lampa
ya hacho peet pajaloosta”

hello Ben I’m your babbooshka Jana B.
he will look at me and maybe
pick some flowers.

How delightful Janet! It is a joy to be able to spend some thime with them especially when so far apart. I bet you do pick flower gems of love and joy together. Special poem!...Eileen

How just absolutely wonderful to have cross-culturual blood in your close family, Janet. A privelege and a blessing for sure. I wish you much joy. Love the flower-picking motif... like all the best ambassadorial welcomes.. the child presents the sweet posy as the carpet is rolled out. Delightful, thank you. LOL K xx

My dear old grandmother always wore her babooshka, and she really looked good in it. And I did like picking flowers from her wonderful garden.
