Everything is Something

By Nadia David

~~~

To a child everything is something

 

A simple drink with a straw

Turns into popping bubbles

 

A couple of finished toilet paper rolls

Turn into the greatest binoculars

 

An empty cardboard box

Turns into the perfect house

 

A blanket

Turns into a magic cape

 

Socks on a slippery floor

Turn into ice skates

 

Music

Turns the room into a dance floor

 

Food on their plate

Turns into an exciting game

 

Water

Turns into endless possibilities

 

Sticks turn into swords

 

Rocks turn into precious jewels

 

And in the eyes of a child,

Moms and Dads

 

Turn into superheroes…
