On Sisters

20130406-210831.jpg

My sister, my self.
We share a face, parents, siblings, an alma mater.
Our memories filtered by a decade
We laugh as we explain to the daughter, the niece
How we were as girls, big sister and little sister
Never recalling a moment the same
Yet knowing the truth of the others’ remembering.

Years of living far apart melt
In intense moments spent together
Just talking.
