  • I am enriched by the influence of Uncles
    Some of them long dead
    Alive in my memory I hear their laughter still
    Voices of knowledge and experience
    My Father’s brothers
    Who also once lived under the roof
    Of the man I call Grandfather
    And so we share more than blood
    We are connected by a bond
    Not of flesh but of spirit
