The wall rose
seemingly out of nowhere —
but its twisted rotten roots
in their dark soiled past
that stretched all the way back
to beginning of time

Superb!! Exquisite and powerful!!
This reminds me of my birth family, badly fractured by years-long abuse. I deluded myself that these relationships were full of the warm fuzzies that most people think when they say “family”. But once I realized the true depth of their animosities (my family are not my friends by any means), I was overcome by reeling mind flashes back to the abusive past with a passel of older siblings mimicking abusive parents. So often we humans only see what we want to see & I love the phrase: “seemingly out of nowhere” (becuz of it’s ironic bite)
I felt barriers here springing up in a long term relationship, to expose baggage. It almost had an Adam and Eve feel to it. Your artwork is always so colourful and you have your own unique Kira style. Happy Sunday dear poet from across the pond.
