Tug of Love and Will

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Photo Challenge #122


– Kate Maldonado


Tied by a silken ribbon

Of blood they pull

In a tug of love and will,


Feet planted firmly

In sisterly soil,

Blind to the turmoil

On their life’s horizon,

Unaware that soon

The silken ribbon

Will be cut

Like the umbilical cords

That bound them together,

To one placenta.
