Friday and Friday

"Friday's Child" - Grace Wiederseim for Swift & Co., 1907
“Friday’s Child” – Grace Wiederseim for Swift & Co., 1907

two of us

born on

two

somewhat

equidistant

fridays

introduced as

children

with all

the crass

the hurtful

the easily hurt

immaturity

that children

had.

 

both

growing up

the hard way:

so much

pain,

so much

anger,

so much

in the way

of bitterness –

but laughter

but light

returned,

reunited

as we

are.

 

daughter

and son

to lady freya

both with

so much

love

so much

wisdom

to give

the world

like their

friday-born

siblings;

each capable

of loving

of caring

of giving

everything

we have

so that

others

can live

can thrive

at the

expense

of our own

ambitions.

 

we wonder

we wander –

wandered –

different paths

each taking

arduous journeys

few would

dare

undertake

let alone

consider.

 

but that

dear friday child

is our

beauty

is our

charm:

perhaps

this time

as our

current paths

are one,

mayhap

we can

share

this journey

and spread

our shared

magic

wisdom

innovation

into this

mundane world.
