Rumi & Dylan

On the day the cherry tree blossomed

Rumi and Dylan were born 

My sister was here 

It was shorts and tank top weather

We watched the goat mama push her kid with confidence

Licking his silky body dry 

He sang his sweet song announcing, I’m here, Mom

Fluffy white sister watched with anticipation

To see the brother she knew so well 

In the womb

Brought into the light of an afternoon sun

Innocence of being born on fresh hay 

Knowing exactly where to find the milk

Simply stunning

We watch in awe as sisters born of the same mother 30 years ago

Welcome to this world, little one

We call you Rumi & Dylan

For the poets of truth and song
