A Family Reunion

Rating: 4.8
The family all gathered around the heavy laden table
Their hands clasped together with heads bowed down low
Giving their many thanks for another chance to be able
To receive all the blessings that the Father would bestow

Many tasty home made dishes were passed from hand to hand
Sounds of laughter coming from every woman, child and man
Conversations around the table would never seem to end
Others wondering when they'll ever see each other again
Children running to and fro in each and every directions

It reminds me of my left out lovely early days in my boyhood when we were united in every festivity (say new year, marriage, first rice, or Durga Puja) . I'm born & brought up in a joint family, it reminds me of those large no of relatives, those exchange of good wishes, we the kids' running around with fun & frolics that warmth..... reminds me those good old days, getting nostalgic......this lovely detailing touches heart.

Family reunions are always occasions eagerly looked forward to. When dear ones gather together under one roof after a period of time...what an excitement.... what all hot news to share... how much to remember and recollect from the past... how much to plan for the future...! Every one irrespective of age engage in lively talks and merry making! When I read this beautiful poem of yours, I am reminded of a great family get together when my mother was alive and we gathered together to celebrate her 85th birthday! ! Thanks Pat for all the pleasant memories, this poem evoked! !
