Twice the Blessing?  Twice the Curse...

The haikuhorizons prompt this week is “match”.  Of course…I went a bit dark.

The twins clothing matched
Mother insisted on it
They weren’t very pleased.

It was cute in youth
But they aged – mom got them bows.
The neighbors would stare.

When she disappeared
Mom’s absence was notable –
They no longer matched.

  1. Why did I chuckle at this? 🙂 I found it quite hilarious. Except for the image of the two girls… *shudders*

      Haha. And yes. I don’t think I’ve watched that movie all the way through. *double shudders*

  2. Hooray for haikus! They are a beautiful way to honor creativity and expression. Great job!
