CIRCLE OF LIFE

On a routine afternoon
I sit clipping their nails.

my daughter and my father...
Two ends of a lifeline

in his hard nails
the sands of time...
of loves lost...
joys,frustrations and
sephia memories.


in her soft nails
the pinkness of life...
in her soft palm
the promises of future
the dream lines of a lifetime.

and I am the happy link
joining the two
sunrise,sunset and the day between
completeing
the circle of life.

  3. i cannot stop myself from reading this poem over and over again....thanks for writing so beautifully about the links we do become in our lifetimes to those extremes...reminding us of the circle of life, the circle of globe, the cycling of water, and of our thoughts...
