Family in twelve steps combinatorial

Page one of honouring your ties familial
is love true and nurturing, uncensorial.
Then, it follows, the TV is off prandial
to learn each other by way oratorial.
There will be history and baggage vitriol:
that’s revealed in time hubby and uxorial.
Children cannot be mere clones accessorial
or they’ll die unknowing, unreal out mondial.
Let them fight, make mistakes so controversial
riding both order and chaos mercurial.

A Nod to my NORD turning Japanese

Introduction from Poitou (11.1)

Four haiku for you
may you laughingly accrue
knowledge déjà vu.

A bright April day not quite Helvetic (21.17)

Sun achromatic,
Spring air diaphragmatic;
joy enigmatic?

Latinate Mood Contaminate (30.13)

Joyous incarnate
till your eyebrows machinate.
I must urinate.

Ode to the Norwegian, Edvard Grieg (18.5)

A peerless tone league
and orchestral folk blitzkrieg
renege my intrigue.
