The Circle of Life is an interesting prompt from Colleen, one that got me thinking… with age we become childlike and vulnerable again.
A Nonet seemed the perfect form to express this continuum with the fragile fullness of life at the top and the single word, too, representing the tendency to become childlike at the end of life.
The circle of life begins at birth
With sharp cries of fragility
We long for sweet sustenance
Latching to mother’s breast
We feed, grow, and live
Aging each day
