A Family of None

Image

 

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.
