Here’s my latest entry into the dVerse Open Link – why not take a look at everyone else’s wonderful responses?
This piece is in honour of family – mine, yours, past, present and future. I’m a September baby, as was my dad. Autumn is my favourite season, it’s my season, my family season. For me, it’s a time of looking forward and back. I hope you enjoy my short but hopefully sweet piece.
– Lineage –
I trace the lines from me to you
The DNA meanders through
the decades separating us
Reflected in our eyes.
I trace the names repeatedly
The warp and weft of history
binds us closely, centuries old
Hearts linked across the years.
I trace the lines around your eyes
The crooked smile points to the ties
that show us to be family
Connected for all time.
Trace your future to my past
The generations move so fast
Enjoy your life, be proud, be strong
Your history lives in you.
