Second Chance May 2016
Sponsor: Eve Roper


five generations
   connected to my grandpa
      kindred forefather

parents united
    unto them came four children
      love to go around

mother faced cancer
   a dear lady, my angel
      adulthood so strong

adoring siblings
   warmhearted and devoted
     affections of blood

money not vital
   wealthy in rich loyalty
      assets of true faith

our childhood dog Bo
   my sweet Golden Retriever
      my canine best bud

united as one
   roots form a family tree
     belovedly linked

Hi Luloo, i decided again today my first write would be a Haiku and i am glad i did. Roots indeed form a family tree and they bring forth thoughts of a beautiful Haiku. This group of Haiku really sing and paint such a beautiful canvas of family. A creative write on the theme Luloo. Wishing you good luck for the contest. This is a seven and a fave. An excellent write. Hugs....Mike. XX

Very good job. Hard to choose between our adult, chosen family and the one we were born to, so I may write about both. You wrote an excellent piece to get this contest ramped up! All the best ... CayCay

They are very rare happy cases to know five generations upon the same roof of hope and grace. Linked by the same link of true love. It is a gift as your gift as a poet embracing your tree.
