Family Diplomacy

There is never a cross word with us
she is honest frank and a bit biting
We're too disparate to argue and
debate is okay as far as it goes
A former teacher and widowed
well beyond trying to reform me
A lonely one using discussion
to delay a visitor a few minutes
I love being with her for an hour
before her abrasive ways wear thin
My adieu is kind quick and final
not waiting to lose my reserve
I can't tell her off spoiling our future
one shows respect for one's mother

F William Broome 2003-08

I know this is FICTION for you but I think many can relate.. A wonderful example of contemporty no nonsense poetry..

A fine piece of writing, a loving visitation for those who understand the love and wonder and weariness of old growing.

You are the master of short but profound penning.

I like the honesty of this write, I lost my own sweet mother when I was only 25 and think of her often, I even wonder what she would have thought of my successes, failures, life style etc if she had lived. You are a lucky man to have a mother so full of life and living and your love of her even ignoring the duration of your visits shines through.

so nice--and laced with the respect she deserves

Compelling writing draws the reader in and has them spellbound - you do know how to tell the tale! Well done, Bill.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Bill, I like this so much. I was wondering who this woman would be, or if you'd even let us know. Loved it when I got to the end! Excellent!

Tact is the key ingredient of diplomacy Bill. Thought provoking look at our parents, and mom in particular. Mine is almost 92 and a bit testy at times. I love her beyond words. Jon Michael Willey
