Wings to fly…and a nurturing lap

Come, rest in my folds…says the sea to the fish;
I can’t, I want to play with every wave of yours,explore every spectacle inside you…says the fish.

Come, see the beauty of the earth through my eyes…says the sky to the bird;
I can’t, I want to soar high, reach new heights,explore your vastness, and then see the wonder that is the earth, through my own eyes…says the bird.

Come, let me show you how to flap your wings…says the bird to her baby;
I can’t, I want to leave the nest, unfold my wings,and be a free bird….says the young bird.

Come, I will teach you the ways of the world, so that you are safe from harm…says the mother to her child;
I can’t, I want to fall, rise; witness the magic that is life and exult in it’s glory…says the child.

And this, is how it was always meant to be;
for every being to revel in it’s freedom, with a doting lap to fall back into, when the soul needs nurturing.

  1. This is precisely what the nurturing should be like..n this is how its meant to be … let him learn through his efforts, failures and provide him the warmth of your heart when needed. Wonderfully expressed Sapna . Congratulations !
