We’re Still Family

We're still family 2017kimberhewComplicated relationship can make explanations boring. My family and I seem to be in a season of trials and loss. A couple of weeks ago, we experienced the pain of a love one dying, which is never easy but living 750 miles made it impossible for me to visit him during his short but intense illness.

There will not be a traditional funeral service either. So, I wrote the following poem to express my grief.

Praying sorrow doesn’t dark your door any time soon,

Gone, But Not Forgotten

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Gone, But Not Forgotten.”

I have enclosed the photo  of our former home. We were the lucky ones to sell a house in less than six months in 2011(in the US). Upon sharing the photo, I felt the need to share the poem I wrote during the process of selling it. Our memories of this house are strong, bonding my family.

Help – Family Needed

 by Kim Hewison

My house needs a new family

It’s time for us to be moving on,

Back to where we came from,

Six hundred and seventy miles away.

It’s been a good house,

Warm in winter, cool in summer,

Protecting us from storm after storm,

Solid under our feet

When the earth shook around us,

It’s heard our laughter echo off it’s walls,

Sheltering us in times of sorrow.

Time to say good bye.

Time to hear the pitter-patter of new feet.

Digging for Roots – Home vs Home

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly writing challenge: “Digging for Roots.”

“In this perpetual tug-of-war between now and then, finding the footing to develop a sense of home is difficult, if not impossible, particularly for those who may find themselves stuck between cities, states, or countries.”
