Two poems for Tuesday. The first of April, the prompt is Beginning and Ending. Here is my try:
entering the world,
giddy with each new breath.
Interested in everything and
new experiences abound.
Never dreaming the complexity,
inside and out, of our existence.
New baby’s eyes
grow accustomed to the world.
not always as sudden or as
dramatic as the entrance. Life has been
important and fulfilling to one who’s lived well.
Now is the time to relax, let go, say
goodbye, and move on to the beyond.
