FF55 2/17/12 Definitive Preferences



Not a tense peck on the cheek
Nor a vague wave with a nod from the couch,
Not some feather light hug
or hesitant scrub near the shoulder. 

No bored voice singing, two tone "Hi!"
as you walk in the door.
But a strong hand grabbing hold
a smile leading to real cuppa Jo-


   Yesterday two things occurred. I read  Mr Knowitall's Blog from Haiku Wednesday -
( and responded - see previous post) Much later, I read a short declaration on Family.
Paraphrased here:

'It is family and missing them, (when you cannot get together ;)
AND THEM MISSING YOU BECAUSE THEY LOVE YOU 
AND WANT YOU AROUND .'

Izzy...
I thought that I was a Coffee Freak
But you? Ha!
How do you you sleep?
Loved your 55
Loved both of your last two posts
You Rock the Eastern Seaboard, (And parts of New Hampshire)
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

Lovely, izzy. Time with family and friends - real quality time - is truly precious.

The more a family caters to it's own desire to be happy with each other, the stronger it is.
