A Kinship
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

             A Kinship

She is His mother, daughter too,
I am His brother, son, aren't you
A father, mother, daughter, son,
Adopted children of the One?

I speak and hear my father's voice,
Ancestral genes without a choice,
Like face, and eyes, and color hair,
Inheritance need not be fair,
A mix of recent, mix of old,
A temperament of hot and cold,
From Adam, an ancestral son,
And too, adopted by the One.

Adopted by my Lord the One,
A lover, brother, and a son,
In this, a kinship, willful choice
To listen, follow, love His voice.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
