Frigid Fires

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

A House Divided ~ Philip Brent HarrisA House Divided ~ Philip Brent Harris


Strange day yesterday in many ways
mostly because it was so unexpected.
Brother-in-law whose wife said, nay
so that we felt we had been rejected.

He said let’s do lunch; the visit brief.
I pretended everything, acted normal.
I’d made a mistake in a time of grief.
and consequently drew the black ball.

I penned, posted a poem of my fears.
After the death of a close loved-one.
How many times rifts opened where
there was solid ground to stand upon.

Some family on one side of a chasm.
Some on the other, oh so very close.
Try to bridge it; may cause a spasm.
Fall in a gap where frigid fires roast.

If stones raised, what would ensue?
Could a bridge ever close that gap?
Your blood kin is kin you’d choose
yet they made a choice not to adapt.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,
Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment 

Unite the World!
