A Family of None



A family of none

convenes in silence


Like vultures they descend

feathers ruffled and furled

a dark night night awaits all who hope

the hope of the hopeless 


A family of none


Gathering seeds

stowing them away

for when the other is starving 

becomes a natural prey


A light shines o’er the house

only a few come out

in the darkness 

their secrets locked away


A family of none

forever will be…

I am a writer, thinker, life-long learner, and philosopher of all things, who also happens to be Irish, sarcastic and very intuitive. I'm an 'every-aged' woman who never plans on growing up, just evolving as I go. Passion is my guiding force. My husband and I are enjoying life immensely in our Not So Empty Nest and beyond, by celebrating each and every day as it comes to us.
