Friends of WF
My sister and I only,
the youngest in the shadows
too young for company
ahead, the rest have outgrown us.

I eat a mandarin, she
had chosen an apple
each of us take a bite
before the upward arc.

We have escaped, discovered
evergreen trees that grew flat
on top; these, springy and dense,
we turned into trampolines.

We jump and jump
me up and down
her further and further
into a desire to join the others –

Once musketeers
who shared the stage, a space
opened and separated us
for some years.

Interesting piece! I like how reminiscent it is. Some neat phrases to that bring that picture together. I wonder why we are so eager to leave childhood behind?
