Friends & Family

Let me speak of the wonderful,

Linkages and interactions.

Those that bring joyous distractions.

Whose company I am grateful.

Their constancy always thoughtful.

Of course I speak of friends not foes,

And dear family who did sow;

A love that grows and will not rot.

I am entwined in bless’ed knots,

I will not cut, yes this I know!

For the Ronovan Decima challenge – this week the prompt is knot.


Crisis Bested

Creative juices,

Have been spent.

For so long now,

Minds been bent.


Towards a duty,

For those that raised.

Roles have twisted,

A Patriarch dazed.


A wounded Mother,

Helpless, scared.

Vulnerability exposed,

Weakness bared.


Family solidity,

Has been tested.

But not found wanting,

Crisis bested.
