Kitchen Thoughts

I sat on the floor
and I realized
it was a view I had not seen before.
A room I had walked through,
so many times,
but I had never looked up quite like this.
Is this what dogs see?
Or children?
I seem to lack the memories of looking up.
I haven't always stood this tall,
but I have trouble picturing standing at my mothers knees,
and wrapping my arms around them,
or of feeling
that my father's shoulders were the highest point on Earth.
