Cousins' Gathering

The blood tie counts,
bringing easy familiarity
despite long absences.

Conversation flows easily,
dipping in and out,
picking out disparate threads
hearing all or one as the hours pass.

Favourite old stories retold,
new adventures added,
re-compiling the family narrative.
Burnishing old legends,
filling in some dark corners.

Then the gathering winds down,
group photo taken by the waitress,
and off we go again,
each to our private selves.
"See you in about six months."
The timing is just about right.
