Poems to Other
To my sister on her wedding day:
Old memories are a movie starring you.
Much of me was shaped by our relation,
Years and years of being one of two.
So like two trees alone upon a meadow,
Interplaying with the rain and sun,
Shaped by turning earth through light and shadow,
The growth of two becomes the growth of one.
Even as you enter your new life,
Remember how we shared the morning light.
