I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world,
to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

After hugging, we settle for sleep
back to back, yet wake facing
ready to move together
into our morning embrace.

Today's 'Wednesday Prompt' was to write a family connection poem, emphasising the relationship between two or more family members. I was planning to write a longer poem, but this seemed to say it all.
