Altered Ancestors - IMT

Living for a child
In the heat of the summer, life
Locks when Winter creeps.

I think children are like sponge, they absorb everything easily. Let them absorb that which is positive. Thanks to my parents for inculcating in us the best, to be humane. Hope you liked my Haiku ;)

This is an illo I created 2 years bac for a social cause. It was entry for CCA(Concerned Communicator Award). Hmmm...lost it, but happy that I contributed:)

Deepa I love it and it is so true. We learn from our parents how to treat each other and our children will learn from us.

Hi Deepaz,
I really can connect with you as your kind thoughts and intention is to care for the aged.
Yeah, we must learn to be receptive, to be like a sponge. Absorb what is positive. Thanks again for the great message.

Well just because we are so fond of you (and we have not seen the other entries :D :D) and that this is superb artwork, you certainly have our vote.

And for such a good cause. And you are loving the haiku's aren't you.

Well I am loving them for sure. :D

Hello Deepazartz

It sounds as if you had very wise and loving parents.

If we can teach our children to be kind and caring we have done a great job.

I love your haiku and the contrast that it creates between childhood - summer and old age - winter

I feel I am in the early autumn of my life - with plenty of time ahead of me,but also able to slow down a little and enjoy the changes and the colours...

Happy Days
