Perspectives

Shadowed memories intermingle with childhood dreams of days long past. Looking back on the canon of Time my dance with youth filled my heart with happiness enveloped by the love of a caring father and mother. You danced alongside me for a time hand in hand until you let go feeling unloved though you never were. Black moods pulled you away into a turbulent tide of angry undertows slapping strongly against love’s strong currents. You traded an ocean of love for a desert of discontent and walked away alone and apart and I know not why dear sister. 9/6/2019

Thanks for your caring comments, Silent. It’s been a long, hard road with my sister. My father’s recent passing has unfortunately intensified divisions between us. I pray there will be some resolution in time...
