Spread your newfound wings..to face the brilliant dawn

And like the phoenix

Burned to ash and then reborn

Spread your newfound wings

Erase and rewrite

To revive that sense of being

Then rise in renewal

To face the brilliant dawn

 

On Mothers Day 2005 my daughter, then aged 14, presented me with this poem in the form of a Japanese haiku. An old soul, this was her way of encouraging  and showing her love for me.

Thank you Jessica Ferguson!
