Babies, Relentlessness of the New

13 Feb


Linked to dVersePoets Open Link Night # 83 Hosted by Tony


Gurgles and smiles
Kicking and (sometimes) screaming
Always hungry (it’s nature’s way)
The newborn always reminds me
We’re all really always new beginnings
Of what’s oldest and most enduring
(c) Felipe Adan Lerma 2013


Little Max, our fifth grandchild! ;-)

    Congratulations on your 4th grandchild – and on your poem. Life is a never-ending succession of endings, but each one is also a new beginning.

      So very true, thanks do much Tony, glad this phone-mode is working too, “another” kind of new beginning ;-)
