A Star Comes to Shine

A Star Comes to Shine

Parents and children now

by Meenakshi Suri


Children aged 2 weeks, 2 months, 2 years or 20….
I’m sure you have experiences aplenty!

Come share with us!

Does being a parent consume, annoy, fascinate?
Are all these familiar as different states?

Come share with us!

And what of the child?
That being of contrasts who brings us
face to face with reality

Who is born at once wise and dependent…
So assertive of needs
Semingly unaware of self

How can the most difficult job in the world
be entrusted to the untrained arms of any parent?

Between the tottering of a child’s footsteps
and the tentativeness of the parent’s touch…
A star comes to shine…


Come share with us!
