HELENA & IRINA, their jaggery ways & a poem XX


a mother's wishes


may they grow tall - with their feet firmly on ground

may they reach up high - while life sways them (gently) this way & that

may they be tender at heart, yet wild in their ways

may they love for the sake of loving

may they give for the sake of giving

may their roots, with an insatiable thirst for adventure, forever long to grow & expand

may their shoulders feel no burden while they wander with pockets filled with treasure.
