16 Sep Bringing Beauty
The Two came to me in different forms of beauty.
One in late afternoon light, calmly singing and cooing
The other piercing the night’s darkness like flash of fire
The Two uniquely offer their beauty to the world.
One in humble graciousness, rising and falling like a butterfly,
The other passionately blooming in vibrant color, petals open,
The Two give to me beauty, everyday, in their own special way.
One toils and plans and makes things with her hands
The other offers me gifts from her bare hands.
The Two came in beauty, offer beauty, and give to me beauty.
One and the other, my daughter’s.
My beautiful, beautiful girls.
