In Bird Songs
Today is my son's birthday; he got his birthday gift early since in January from me, and today, i called to wish him Happy Birthday; I used a tiny crop from one of his art pieces for the background of today's haiga.
morning sun -
the colours of today
in bird songs
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
