The essence of youth, embracing life : A haiku

Updated on January 6, 2013

Budding, blossoming

Ever changing and growing

A new flower

Rising, a new start

Running legs with energy

Scrambling with vigor


One Direction-Live While We Are Young

Filled with adventure

Embracing new experience

Curiosity

Burst of energy

Ever ready to begin

A live battery.

      The essence of youth is being filled with energy and enthusiasm. New life also means the desire to try all things new!

      Hmm. Kim. The cute button must be hiding away in the learning centre somewhere!! LOL! Every time I write a haiku, I end up discovering new wildlife pics...always fascinated by the close ups. Glad you like them!! Thanks for the pin!!

      You captures the curiosity, spirit, vulnerability and strength of new life perfectly. I love the "live wire" line. It is so true and yet so unexpected. Thanks for a lovely collection of Haiku.

      The 'essence of youth' that was once ours I think has never left us. We will always have the youthful vigor, leap of enthusiasm, curiosity 'whys' and to remain always young at heart. And to our youngsters, may they embrace life with joy and care. Beautiful haiku!

      Blessings for your grandson, Mary! I think as a grandma, it's even more interesting watching them grow, like you did your own children...it's like the process repeating itself! Glad you like the pics....my favorite is the one of the little ducklings on the log. Thanks for coming by, and the votes!!
