Secret Sisterhood

I watch it develop

a secret sisterhood of

whispered thoughts

shared between giggles

You already exclude

the relation of the opposite sex

at a mere 2 and 4

I watch as biological sisters

become sisters of the soul

and I smile as my daughters

become friends.

This poem was written for my daughter Gina and Sydney with the hope that they would stay as close as they were that day in 1996.
