Family Reunion

Blown here
by winds of opportunity
our forebears
built new lives
from old
Like milkweed
seeds
taking root
descendants scattered
to cultivate their lives
Returning briefly
we flock together
in the kindness of kinship
sharing new histories
and old memories
Hearts and minds reconnect
familial bonds link
uniting generations
growing new lives from old.
