Monday's Child Week 2-Life Goes On



Image by Bernhard Oberdieck provided by Monday's Child

The following poem is an entry for Monday's Child prompt 2, a fresh weekly meme which encourages talented writers to create a children's story or verse in response to an image provided. Please check it out at www.childrensverse.blogspot.com for details.

*****

Tissue by tissue to a soul one grows,
As leaf by leaf the trees become trees,
Day by day, one learns and sows,
When the sun has fun seeing breeze.

.....

Seeds of hope give one wings to fly,
One either winnowed to earth or whirled to the sky.
Life goes on,
Some survive while others die.

.....

Wrinkles of a splash, on the water cease,
Body and soul, bend and stretch like these.
Elements to elements, cells to cells,
Individuals to individuals, dream for peace.

.....

Feel the coolness when cool winds blow,
Listen to the music when the lure vibrates with its bow.
Giggle baby alike while enjoy the nature's show,
Mark down your innocence when the days are covered with snow.

Now package them in a pretty little book, for we so need 'new' verses for our dear little ones to grow by.

Lovely.

This is a lovely and lyrical poem. I like the idea of Monday's Child...all children should be introduced to poetry and what better way than to write your own?

I like the part about the 'wings to fly' like our words or actions or our imagination will help us carry us on

I can just imagine the seeds of hope.
They certainly give wings to fly.
