Life’s Jewels (tanka)*

seeds sown in body~

slow development begins~

changes with seasons~

resounding rhythm heard with joy~

falls arrival brings new life~


we are given this gift, a raw gem

to shape into what this world needs

a loving human being


children need guidance~

teach lessons of acceptance~

taught with much kindness~

each is uniquely special~

by our example they learn~


*Note: children are our most precious jewels to love.

🌎✌🏻💙 Take care, be safe.
