Back To The Beginning

scan0406One
Begins life
Totally dependent on others

Initially taking baby steps,
Exploring the world outside of self

Growing…learning… bonding

Decade upon decade,
Extending the boundaries of our realm
OUTWARD

Until, in old age,
The tables are turned

Fragile legs take halting steps

Children become parental;
Parents become childlike

Focusing increasingly
INWARD

Our world begins to shrink
Ever smaller in size

Until coming full circle

Back to square
One

  1. Dear friend,

    Life is like a circle and life and death are circles as well. We see the seasons in life which again return, we see day and night changing all the time. However, those circles are themselves – only transitions…

    Thanks for sharing 🙂
    All the best
    Didi
