First steps.

Bells chime, lesson time,
treasure trove of ABCs -
first year of marriage.
********************************
Tiny feet totter,
pride, joy light up mother's eyes,
toddler takes first step.
********************************
First kiss of warm love,
last embrace of pleasant dreams,
horizon of hope.

  7. cant stop responding so beautiful !

    first year of marriage.
    time flies by swift as swallow
    a monsoon outpour

    toddler takes first step.
    miracle of creation
    swan in summer lake

    one legged crane looks back
