Family

Sanctuary dissolves like yellowed paper

Fragile to touch

Decaying to dust

Skimming the air

Solitary thoughts insistent

Reminding of child times

Rhymes, swinging feet kicked out

Soaring, pout gone, lips upward curved

Playing ball, tennis serve, camping

Ponies, kittens, soft purr, whiskers tickling

Prickling knowledge, all gone

Family like (distant) friends

Friends like family

Brambly path thorns catch skin

Spot of blood

Not thick.
