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.

  1. Beautifully expressed and put! Reading this I did not immediately think of children but rather that we are all still growing at every stage of our life. We keep developing long after childhood from this first nurtured seeds.
