Two Flowers
By Joanna Beacom

Rooted like two flowers sprung
From the same seed
She reads my mind
Old soul daughter of mine
Wisdom reaches far beyond her years
I stumble towards some random thought
And to my surprise
She speaks it out loud
A secret revealed and unraveled
Caught like a small perfect present
Wrapped in turquoise paper

As though we were having a discussion
Only I haven’t said a word
It’s times like these
I can see clearly
How our lives will be connected
‘Til stars drop from the sky
And set earth on fire
Even when hate defeats love
Our DNA predetermined
Complicated and complex
She is mine and I made her
A model of me
Despite her resistance
Digging her heels in the dirt
Unique and independent
Unable to cut the tendrils
Of our genetic road map
Which bind us together
This inescapable journey
