Haiku Friday

Haiku Friday

My sister and I,

We have fought, and laughed, and talked

Almost 30 years.


When I think of me

She is somehow always there.

My shadow and friend.


The day she was born,

That is my first memory.

The first day of me.


She is strength and truth.

She is laughter and sunshine.

She is my sister.

You are so good on posts with your family. I think she's lucky to have a sister who so obviously adores her.

If I were your sister I would be crying about now and running over to hug you. :)

Beautiful Haiku. It sounds lovely to have a sister.
I only have a brother, and thats nice too, but I've always thought a sister would be much closer.

Great haiku - although it brought back all my childhood wishes of having a sister. You are both so lucky!
