Half Century

diasporas

Another 50 years has blazed away
perhaps not as quick as a hiccup
or wink but quietly succeeding day
on day; there is an esteemed and
substantial leisure relevant in this
passage of comforting events – a
growth of hegemony where those
absent still feed from its strength

We are sustained in a potency of
unhindered love and acceptance,
know who we are uncritically thru’
family eyes and no restraints have
meaning when the blaze of long
lived affection glows this bright
