Family Visit

To focus among
precious distractions?
What heart song sung
will promote interactions?

Moments so fleeting,
may not be possessed;
necessary eating
puts connection next best.

Moms of the past years
and grandmas we cherish
seemed to tune in their ears,
not let kinship perish.

Tax our ingenuity;
prioritize our time;
family continuity,
the personal sublime.

If it takes junk food,
just let laundry slide;
their presence so good
let love's time preside.
