The symphony of family pictures

Brought a smile of wryness,

But memories of arguments

Spouted blazing wrath like spicy food


He loathed being the underdog in their discussions

Just as he hated being the office clerk

He could not accept two bosses

For only one would pay


But as his eyes traced the ink on the letter again

The warm memories absorbed the haze

Just like the paper soaked the feelings that flowed

Winter gave way to spring within


He sobbed with each nod

Responding to the mute plea

“Can we change our egos

And make untie into unite?”




I’ve been in a phase of trying a number of new things. Or is that just life?

      And with you, Michael! May we all borrow each other’s snow blizzards bit by bit and change our seasons within 🙂

    As one who comes from a gene pool of determined, confident, opinionated people, this piece resonated with me.
