Circle of Life

Child follows parent tryingly. Step by step learning everything with new start. Rejoice and replant. Thoughts become action and action blooms ~~~discovery~~~ blooms action and action become thoughts. Replant and rejoice. Start new with everything. Learning step by step, tryingly, parent follows child.
P.S. This shape poem is a palindrome.

I am humbled, Connie. Thank you very much! I don't think I will be attempting the palindrome again anytime soon, however!

With humorous verse the writer can do just anything he wishes with words. The reader should not analyze too literally, otherwise the humor falls flat on its face, so to speak. Thanks for the stop and comments. Now get a good night's sleep. / M

Inverse reflection...ok, palindrome sounds better! Clever rendition and presentation. I suppose in a few years time I too will become dependent on my children:) ~ Regards // paul

Glad you could absorb the message. I've always kinda thought that both the child and parent learn from each other (just in different ways).

Thanks Suzanne! Palindromes are difficult to make sense backwards and forwards. I've seen some that write long and extravagant poems this way ... I can only do it in very short instances! Happy you got something out of this :)
