Dinner Party on a Wednesday

Distant laughter crashing together,

Volume equal to ocean waves outstretching

Upon darkened sand,

Under Pisces moon light

 

Sincere flickering of

Scentless candles,

Warming each glow of hearts

Greeting prepared dishes

Of lobster

 

Conversations meshed,

Untangled words constructing

Symphonies of dignity

 

I sit facing the shore,

Hearing nothing specific,

Pieces of liveliness

Trickle up to permeate my ears

 

Hosts entertain cheerfully

As granddaughter chooses

New ways to stay awake

 

Angels surround

Sleeping grandson,

Down the neatened

Hallway

 

Upkeep traditions

Alongside eager

Bystander,

Spirit lineages

Threaded into one

Common family tie

 

All discovered

In the upstairs bedroom

Given the privilege to

Co-create in between

Dutiful chatter.
