(A little suggestion over here will be that to invite your friends, siblings or cousins to write a poem together with you and share it over here, how does that sounds?)

My Sons
by Ina

When the youngest of the three was born
There seem to be a pact they’d sworn
Never to be broken

They shared their toys and  candy just the same
As they would argue for a stupid game
Never giving up

Brothers they were and although they fought
always remaining in the other’s thought
Never be forsaken

Brothers and the love they share
Keep them strong in life and everywhere
Never  be forgotten

For a Friend

I wish I could save you
I wish I could save me
Save me from myself
Save us from unhealthy dreams
And the things that we will never see
Fight those tears with me
I’ll walk alone wherever I go
But I will carry your memory
And your secrets in my misery
I wish I could save us
But my hands are bound to solitude
Sleep in silence my friend
And never touch  this fire again.

Siblings Rivalry For Adults

It feels like you’ve won this war,
but sweetie, guess what?
It’s just the second round of it,
and I hope to hurt you a lot.

So Bart wouldn’t help me,
and nor would Barney.
It’s not their war,
so they won’t be party,
to anything that might make you sad,
but, tell you what honey,
that’s not so bad.

I was born a loner
and I guess that’s me
and when I’m done
we’ll really see!
Or maybe we won’t,
’cause I’m hallucinating.
The future might be yours,
just out there waiting?

I have no idea – don’t care, all I know
is that, somehow,
you always steal my show!
Maybe I’m everything
that you say?
But perhaps being evil
is what takes me through the day?

Thanks for joining in and supporting your fellow poets here at Jingle Poetry Monday Poetry Potluck!!!

Jesse.s.mitchell said...

I don't have any siblings and actually very few cousins...and I have never been too good with prompts so mine have nothing to do with the subject today...don't try to find the family connection...it isn't there. I hope they work for you anyway. thanks for reading.

Jingle Poetry At Washington State said...

No problem,

Victoria said...

Couldn't seem to get going on this one and then a haiku came to me. I have used your cute picture to go with it. Have a good day Jingle. Thanks for the pot luck. Tigerbrite

mindsinger said...

One of eight children, I just realized I've never written a poem about any one of them! Freudian or what? The ones I selected for this Potluck are more friends and community than relatives. Good relationships with my siblings, just no poetry. 8-)

Happy Potluck....

I am thoroughly enjoying reading through all the wonderful poetry, there are some awesome poets around and I feel honour to read thier work.

Happy Potluck and for those of you in the states, happy 4th. I put three pieces down at 79,80 and 82 one is about family, one is about Independence Day and the other is a recent piece. Hope all have a good week:)

The prose poem starts a little way down - after I have a wee ramble about Mum first. :)

Thanks for the opportunity. Sorry if this comment is redundant but I couldn't tell if the last one went through. My submission is about my father. http://chromapoesy.com/2011/07/04/the-game/ Anna

Happy Tuesday,

Fountains said...

Believe all three of mine are off topic, and two of which are my longest poems to date. Yikes. Hope at least someone out there really has some stamina and fortitude. :P Looking forward to reading everyone's contributions.

Jingle said...

Ali, Bella, welcome.

enjoy the potluck.

Anonymous said...

As much as I have written, I'm surprised I don't have any writings on any of those subjects. -.- So I linked one which was requested to me by a friend (Gave me the Title and I worked with it), and came close to the subject at hand.

Music of the Week? Sounds Familiar. Soothing, so far, which makes perfect sense, and fit with the pages theme.
