Bewitched and Bewildered

Spread the love

Ever since she lay her eyes on it, she couldn’t stay away from it

Blank at one moment and alive with colours the next, it was the best magic that she had ever seen.

The glitzy colourful images danced in front of her and she was bewitched

She was in love with it and yearned to touch and hold

Then one day, as she crawled near it unsupervised, she couldn’t believe her luck

She quickly got hold of the nearest object and rushed towards the television to capture all its colours

Then there was a crash and a shatter and all hell broke loose

The whole house gathered, some shouted while the others mourned

The baby stared bewildered at the commotion around

and then wailed as she hadn’t been able to capture anything color.

    Poor baby! Though as a grandmom I’m not at all keen on babies watching TV so I’m glad it crashed.
