Distance won't separate 
our hearts 

the bond is 
too strong 

Our history 
connects us 

as bones 
connect limbs

9 thoughts on “Tethered

  1. Penny, this poem fits my thoughts right now in the missing of my son, whom I haven’t seen since Christmas. Yesterday I cried for missing him. Your words speak to me. Thought physically distanced, we remain tethered, not only via history, but also via bones… Thank you for this poem.
