Haiku Poem: Circle of life | Pampers or Depends | Birth until Death
Circles with No beginning or end in the Japanese Contemplation Gardens
Haiku poem: Circle of Life Infancy to Elderly
Pampers to Depends
Infancy to Elderly
Life Begins and ends
Strollers to wheelchairs
Daycare to caregiver like
Crawling, Falling both
Pureed food no teeth
Sippy cups to feeding tubes,
Drooling, feed times, bibs.
Life goes full circle
Save for college tuition
Social security ends
Life goes full circle
Is life all about the destination, the process, the journey or is it about the here and now. I have come to the conclusion that there is very little difference between the actual experiences in beginning of life and the its end...creation of the alpha only to end with dust to dust of the omega....like the yin and yang, life goes full circle. We are born into life and live life until we exhaust the fleshly vessel.
This past year I became a grandmother. The birth of a child is the greatest miracle of all with an incomparable awesome eternal love that bonds each generation beyond compare. Within this same year my husband's elderly father moved into our household. Learning to take care of the elderly is very similar to learning to take care of an infant. The dichotomy of my world consists of diapers or depends, milk bottles or water bottles, strollers or wheel chairs, feeding times, bathing times, meal cleanups and household safety alterations to name a few.
Somedays I ponder the delight of new life in progress and also the unfairness of the aging process within the same day or even the same hour. The similarities are many as I go from baby world to eldercare. We are born, at some point gain anticipation of the living the good life only to find in the twilight hours of our life we arrive at the point of full circle. For one the day is dawning, for another the day grows dim.
