#5: Big Sister, Little Sister


Big sister on momma's lap
welcomes little sister just born.
Who is this little baby girl? 
Can I touch her? Gently?

You can love her 
without really knowing
you are not the only child anymore,
that you will always have
a little sister somewhere,
toddling after you and
challenging you. 
Sometimes you won't want to share.
Later, you will be grateful for every memory.
Big sister, little sister.

Today's prompt for OctPoWriMo is simply love. I think of love in so many different and sometimes complicated (maybe always complicated) ways. Here, My granddaughter greets her new baby sister. What a world awaits them!
