SNOWFLAKES AND NEEDLE EYES

As snowflakes symmetrically formed falling from gray tumultuous clouds and storms bursting in anger spewed their violence my heart sailed beyond the storm into the sun seeking my parent's love drifting high I searched for the comfort and security they gave me The eye of a needle is small a businessman cannot go through it neither can a camel, so the Bible says so sons and daughters are not dissimilar to their parents lives Snowflakes fall to earth resplendent in their symmetry in falling to earth snowflakes lose their uniqueness but soon merge with Mother Earth to nurture nature and the planet that feeds us all Parent's strength is needed by children to traverse Life's eye of the needle a mother teaches her daughter how to raise her own family a father prepares his son to find his place in this harsh life but parents grow old and need assistance Daughters carry the seed of her family's nature sons carry an urgent need to propagate the seed daughters reciprocate the kindness learned from parents sons return to help when parent's need is urgent Snowflakes and needle eyes have different reasons for existing needle eyes have a beautiful practicality snowflakes possess an intrinsic, salient beauty sons and daughters are different but precious in their parent’s eyes At the time of a parent's last breath sons and daughters will bend their knees at their parent's bed to offer their last gift of love giving their parent's closure to the Life cycle of their Life's Journey
