A Family of None



A family of none

convenes in silence


Like vultures they descend

feathers ruffled and furled

a dark night night awaits all who hope

the hope of the hopeless 


A family of none


Gathering seeds

stowing them away

for when the other is starving 

becomes a natural prey


A light shines o’er the house

only a few come out

in the darkness 

their secrets locked away


A family of none

forever will be…

    1. Thank you kindly! A little dark for this time of year – but realistic view of the other side of the holiday season for many.
