TITLE: Two Sisters
By lynn gipson


Two Sisters

As sisters, they are individuals,
God created with reason and rhyme,
One takes up where the other left off,
As day is to night, every time.


A fair haired beauty with hazel eyes,
Lips of roses and cheeks that bloom,
A smile that would rival Mona Lisa,
The heart is hidden in a secret room.

What mystery does she hold inside?
Eleven years going on twenty five,
Her intelligence knows no boundary,
She tells the Truth; Jesus is alive!

Her most prize possession? A Rosary,
Pink and white, her favorite colors,
She prays from the soul of her child,
With solemn tears; blessing others.

This gentle girl is rare and sensitive,
She feels things others can't see,
Such a gift from God above,
Her spirit of light shines beautifully.


A dark haired beauty; eyes black as coal,
This child was born asking, “Why”?
Why does the moon seem so close to me?
When it's really so high in the sky?

Dancing and sparkling her day away,
Sweet, yet temperamental; she beguiles,
One would swim the ocean blue,
For one of her dazzling smiles.

Long-legged and slim is her style,
A daddy's girl through and through,
She has his ways, so much like him,
With a heart so loyal and true.

She knows her Savior, yes she does,
She prays to Him every night,
“Dear Lord, watch over this big wide world,
And keep me in Your super sight.”

This poem captures the difference of 2 lives and the likeness that is no doubt sent from the Lord. It makes one stop and contemplate how the Lord works the same but differently when it comes to the precious lives and spirits of 2 young girls. It is very well written and comes from the heart of God.

I really like the contrast between the two sisters. Great poem and good use of this week's topic.

I know the word has already been used by another commenter, but sweet is the one word I can think of that sums this piece up well. You gave us vivid pictures of both girls to where I felt I could visualize them, including their personalities. Nice work!

Thank you for introducing us to these two contrasting loved ones with such depth of description. Your lovely poem brings them alive.

This was a great use of Day and Night showing how different sisters are.

Shouldn't it be "most prized possession" instead of prize?

I loved the sentence "Dancing and sparkling her day away"!

This is so lovely and creative. I loved the juxtaposition of the two and think your slump must surely be over. The only colored ink I would offer would be to add the hyphen between words like light-haired girl. The topic is spot on and fresh and creative. You did a splendid job with this piece.

Thanks for sharing.

You may feel in a slump but your writing speaks otherwise.
