I Miss You

.


I did not know you….

we became a family

in very small steps



                         I was very young...

                         you never overwhelmed me

                         with your eagerness



                                                                When my mother died

                                                                 you wrapped your arms around me...

                                                                 you became my own

IN LAWS

IN-LAWS

Your parents long gone,
many in-laws fill space with joy.
Some take more than give.

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

with patriotic glee

with patriotic 
glee, for love of their country,
all Americans

emptied their accounts,
piggy banks and all, to help
pay their nation's debt

In a wine bottle

They hate his drinking -
       But they put his ashes in …
A wine bottle urn.

Shadow of Senryu Suite 5

Concept of sameness
within family nuance...
blood line prevalent.

When The link is blood
the brain a mind of its own...
tolerance prescribed.

Honour each other
respect is earned not a gift...
like an open mind.
