Our existence,brimming with splendor:a tanka poem
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
― Albert Einstein
Life is brimming with gifts and splendor....
Bright gems to proffer
Laying out on a fine platter
Ready to present
Multitude of gifts
like the innocence of a child...
Little teddy bear probing
a mother's love.....
A fortress resolute
Innocence above oneself
and the gift of friendship.
A sturdy spider’s web
Binds tightly with strength
An unbreakable network
