Steeped in amniotic fluids,
ejected from maternal womb –
dropped into parents’ environment.
Simmered in their care, their beliefs,
their modeling behaviors and aspirations.
Children grow roots where they are planted.
Tend your garden wisely.
Written for dVerse, the virtual pub for poets around the globe.
