Meditation on the Letter V for TOP & Day 8

Meditation on the letter V

V’s are arrows pointing this way and that way.
They are vases holding the verses of our lives.
V’s are hands raised in a wave, cheering.
V’s are democratic; the capital V
is the very model for the baby v.
If you know one, you know the other.
It’s a family vibe.

When you see a fluttering, wavering V above,
you know the season is about to swerve,
become severe or temperate: veering into fall
or sliding into vibrant spring: the evolution
of our living.

V stands proudly, head erect, full of values:
dignity, assertiveness, conviction, veracity,
devotion, loyalty, love.

V’s are inverted legs giving birth.
We are all alive,
the first view of us
through the V in our mother’s bent legs.
We arrived through the avenue of a V’s V

and we proclaim victory.

V surely are strong, versatile and inspiring personality. Love the way we are brought down to earth at the end with the 'avenue of V's' through which we enter life.
