Poetry Thursday 248 - Relationship hazards

For you normal folk relationships are an intricate part of life. For all of us there are family relationships for varying lengths of time. In both cases the nature of those relationships can be extremely tenuous.

Ties that Bind

It all hangs by a thread,
that may easily be parted,
but few of us live in dread,
hazards are unconsciously thwarted.

As soon as it is tethered,
then dangers are abroad,
tenuous links are threatened,
no snicker snee of a sword.

A slight tug, a minimal jerk,
can sever the flimsy bond,
undoing the preparation work,
returning state to single frond.

The repeated touch and go,
is part of nature’s order,
seemingly random to bestow
the choices, then re-order.

In writing the above I felt that I needed to describe the fragility of relating with others.

The next poem was just for fun.

Perfume

In days of old when knights were bold,
ere deodorant was invented,
they removed their armour in solitude
none to share foul fermented.
