    I'm like Viv today. There are some things that mean so much, that are felt so deeply, they are beyond description. The words to express them don't exist. Family is one of those things. That made this a very difficult prompt. http://thepoetsquill.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/family/

    Wonderful poem, Cloaked Monk. Wish I could have thought of something like that.

      Thanks! I don't know why my brain went there, but it did. :-)

    well done. A very interesting interpretation. I just can't do this one.
    1. Terri said on March 16, 2011
      That's okay! No worries.

    i love your take on the prompt. i have a reblogging post with links to two very short stories about families, one by Monocle at Microlensing and one that i wrote at PHOTOGRAPH Prose. if it's okay to submit those in the Challenge here's the link: http://haikulovesongs.wordpress.com/2011/03/16/statements-by-monocle-via-microlensing/

    I enjoyed your scientific approach to family. As far as I managed to go in that direction was to write down the word 'genes!' It went no further.
