I had a lot of fun writing some more ‘poetry on demand’ at another local wedding event this morning, and would like to share one here – written, as usual, in just three minutes – on the requested subject of Family. They gave me more background that just that one word theme of course, but I’ll let the poem speak for itself. Enjoy 🙂

A family as big in heart
as in number
where love runs
thicker than blood
and all are welcome
whatever the connection
but it’s getting harder
to stay in touch
more movement now
more spread out
but we do our best
to keep that glue
of love and connection
strong and true
and though it’s not
all joy and bliss
I wouldn’t trade a thing
for this
solid rock of family
foundations of a life
rooted in, but going beyond
that bond of man and wife
