Family Tea Party December 26, 2006

Filed under: Poetry — jojanoski @ 5:36 pm

A workshop assignment to
write a septet about family.


Family (Tea Party)


Petals on roses
Stemmed by sleek generations
Bountiful flowers sprung from same roots
Resplendent, cacaphonous
Gathering for life’s
Tea Garden

  1. I like the symbolism of rose petals.

    beautiful septet on family, Jo; all important factor in our lives. Agree with Terry…the rose patals make a great family symbol. I was still looking for Chrocolates to go with Tea :o)

    I concur, kudos on the analogy. My family, though, is more likely to be at the beer bash than the tea party. We may crash one later if we are conscience long enough…
