There is a recipe–

that is the beginning of a meal,

There is an egg the hen laid,

to either become a chick

or an omelet;

There is the toddler

learning words,

leaving infancy

to take on the task

of becoming a toddler;

He will undertake many different kinds

of beginnings as he journeys through life;

There is the family dog

giving birth to pups and

we had many baby rabbits

when my sons were growing up;

There were also numerous litters

of kittens that somehow found homes;

all birth is a beginning just as

all deaths are an ending;

Where will we go from here?
A new beginning or

another ending?
