#NaPoWriMo Family Tree Acrostic

April 12, 2017 , , ,

leaf from the family tree

leaf from the family tree

Familiar faces at the reunion remind us of our youth
Aunts and uncles talk about the cousins and their lives
Most of them have moved away, leaving the old behind
Instead of staying near the tree, the children have taken flight
Living in different cities with no connection to the relations
Yesterday is a fading memory, no sentimental chorus
Travels home for visits, for holidays, for traditional meals
Remembrance has no place in the whirlwind of the day
Everyone is a holograph of
Everyone else

It is National Poetry Writing Month.  Please take part by reading, writing, or reciting some poetry this month.  You can find a wealth of new poems each day on the #NaPoWriMo site, or by following the hashtags on social media.  Bust a rhyme.  You still have time.

Your family tree is so incredibly interesting. I love how you merge poetry, photos and now the family tree into one piece!
