My sister and I, in contrast,
became the bookends of our tome;
world traveler escaping home,
while I tried to escape my past.
Alone, she found freedom at last,
I searched for a prince to save me.
To wish for what could never be,
to ask for what was never mine,
a perfect man, almost divine…
civilized into destiny.
HAIKU: Child and Grow
Grow children who love,
for brambles cannot form in
a gardener’s care.
