...and they lived happily ever after. Smith & Lady: poets, artists, photographers & adventurers.
Our relationship was forged to the soundtrack of Yoko Ono's magic,
frenetic, love-laden song, "Walking On Thin Ice." ( play song )
 
   
 
 

MY FAMILY LIGHT AND DARK

MY FAMILY LIGHT AND DARK

My family light
and dark

Lucky and oppressed

My family

My family
the pressing
of held hands
small
and large

My family like
a potluck picnic
melange of cultures
one big soup

Mystery of ourselves

My family
colts of excited cousins
peeking behind
parents’ legs

My family
so forgiving and gracious
clear-eyed children
smiles expecting goodness of us
adults oblivious and easy
or mature and warm

And my harder family
ignorant or beat down by too much ignorance
may something help us,
something help us all
breathe easy

~ Lady
