Writers Island " Promise"

"Releasing Love to the Universe"
Acrylic done on canvas paper

Writers Island Prompt "Promise"

The Promise

A promise tied in blood


The nurture of our mother

The wisdom of our father

Who encouraged



Unconditional love

Bonding a brother

And sister

In times of sorrow

Blunder and Ire


We preserve

The legacy

Of the lovers


Our family


With devotion

To each other

And our progeny

Preserving tradition

Intimate conversation

Respect for individuality

Diverse solutions

During tribulations

While salvaging memories

We are reminded

Of the importance

Of protecting that bond

With reverence

The promise

Of love forever

No matter who

No matter what

Lives on

I like everything about this. The painting is just the right accompaniment to your poem. Your words are so true and so meaningful.

Oh, I love the last line of promise live on and the lack of ending in those words. Promises floating forever, landing where they will. Yum!

Pure joy. What an ideal world you seem to be writing about. If it's yours then I envy you.

One of the best things a parent can do is to ensure strong ties between siblings.. Your parents were wonderful.. they got that message across and you and your brother are better because of it. Truly loving tribute to him and of course to your parents Sherrie. Absolutely moving xox

Thanks for your comment on my poem on ReadWriterPoem. I love Scrabble but haven't gone to that site yet, but will soon! Mostly I've been playing Literati on yahoo games.

I like this poem, too!

Without family, where would we be? I've often wondered how each member can be so different and still come from the same nest. The promise is what counts! Nice post!
