circle of life (eintou)

by Mr. Darcy   Apr 26, 2018


from birth

we learn to walk

in our forefathers sandalled steps

...there, in my wife's sage eyes

swam my future son

    What a nice format, Michael.

    In a world full of technology where the pace never seems to slow down, we are also still, in essence, the people who we were long, long ago. This is what life really boils down to: love between to people and creating new life.

    Nice, nice, it seems you got your mojo back, he he he!

    Take care (((hugs))) xx Ingrid
