Faimly

Author: The Scots Creative Writing Group

cookin
layin the fire
makin beds an cleanin
hingin sarks an goonies oot tae dry
Mither

faither
strong voice few words
sets tone, we all follow
his lap's the chair for waens tae sit
he's cool

Brither
complicated
fecht, bigg up, tear doon, lauch
Ma wey wis clear as you’d pushed oan
ahead

Sister
singing softly
sending me tae the braw
laund whaur oor douce mindins bide
fur aye

Paddlin
doon the watter
the wee yin splashes us
his sister laughs oot lood at it aw -
freedom
