My mum had a twin… 


dove-of-peace

They held hands in the womb, 

Interlocked feet and pulled each others hair in their cocoon, 

I wonder how she would have been,  this aunt I never got to meet, 

She lies in her grave, tiny little bones that never got to age, 

Somewhere in the twilight,  I have a rainbow aunt.
