The Stories She Told

I was young, and so was she, at one time,

long ago.

The stories she told…

of best friends, and boyfriends,

of all sisters, and later, a brother.

her memories are now a part of mine.

the stories she told…

of drag races, and country drives,

of fast rivers, and serene mountains.

her memories are now a part of mine.

the stories she told…

of playful pets, and dangerous encounters,

of joyful tears, and sad moments.

her memories are now a part of mine.

forever…my mother,

the stories she told…

I add these, to the stories I tell.

Wolf Sisters, Three

Wolf Sisters, Three

The wolf sisters, three

that is we.

Come what may, we know not.

Out of nowhere we came,

praying for what?

a hearth, a home?

a pride all our own?

we came upon this meadow,

the sisterhood unknown to me.

Our trails met,

Our voices bonded,

in one great howl.

The courage together,

brings the path alight.

Yet, alone, struggled we.

The wolf sisters, three

that is we.

Come what may, we know not.
