Mi Familia

A family gathering gives,
Appreciating why one lives
Reminisces, laughter galore
About things serious before
Time, growth, and love blossoms forgives.

Sons, now men, have women to love
Humble prayers they would be beloved
Helpmates, companions, hand in hand
Cherished partners, unfolds as planned

Thank you, Grace from dverse for the prompt today for a Quintilla. The form is a Spanish Quintain (Quintilla), which is a 16th century Spanish Quintain form of eight syllable (Iambic Tetrameter) lines. When written as a decastich (2 quintillas), the verse is known as Copla Real.  The topics for my Copla Real are based on the family gathering today.Answers sent by Gaia’s sweet doves

    I like your poem Jade… :-). Here is an interesting but useless fact. There is a wood-stove pizza restaurant in Oregon City. Oregon (where I lived for 25 years) by the name of Mi Familia

      that is interesting. You don’t live in Oregon now? I put it as Mi Familia instead of My Family because the form has Spanish origins, and also practicing my Spanish (have been doing duolingo for close to 2 years now trying to learn it). Glad you liked the poem 🙂
