DISPERSION

Generations

Seeds of a flower
grew together
now are astride the wind
to find their fortune
in a land yonder
where new life begins
another blossom
just like old home
sends off its young again.

Life goes on –
birth
death
generations.

Oh, brother
oh, sister
flourish where you are
as a seed that was born by the wind
but we will meet again
and remember
our ties that bind,
thicker than water
until the passing time
erases our memories
and we are seen
only as names in stone
by then we would be together
in our  eternal home.

  1. A lovely peom, lovely sentiment, Imelda, and the dandelions are the perfect illustrations … we will all leave here on a fluff of wind and still endure … life begets life. I love it.

  2. Some lovely sentiments in this, Imelda. I love the message – that wherever we land, we should make the most of it. I am far away from most of my family at the moment, so remembering those ties is all important.
