Still born twin

Evening comes.

The cremating sun hides in

tangerine dreams of

mourning  clouds,

that you’ve never seen.

The air is crisp with the skipping of

tantalising breezes

that you’ve never tasted.

I would have shared these things

with you

had you not been swept away

before your first glimpse,

and breath touched life into you.

    No, we share an August birthday. Just giving her an extra thought at the beginning of the new year.

  2. Beautiful. Is this your and your sister’s birthday? It’s a beautiful and touching remembrance.
