so grateful to be part of a family
ancestral streams or by relationship means
a place of belonging
sometimes of longing
to feel we are one
one great family
unique yet the same
learning and teaching
as we participate in the game
the game of life
with love and support
patience and understanding
feeding the flow
while allowing that commanding
to seek the new
be they many or few
in the families we have chosen
opportunities keep arriving
to attend to what we are striving
for in balance and beauty
our sacred duty
in becoming the more
like nothing before
families of love
