         for Nancy  Cockerham

History does not repeat itself?
Oh Yes, She does.  She sent me
a sister from other lifetimes, a gift
ungifted in ordinary timelines.

A motherless child needs a sibling
waif, gifted in place with canvas and paint
to my paper and ink, to heal in part
the wounded heart,

and even more, She settled the score
with best surprise, patrician beauty
in the physical guise, conjoining
with impunity positive and negative:

AB and O, as in the blood, so to speak, 
a fortuitous mix unlikely to re-
peat and destined to meet--the Giver
not given to common conceit.

    a wonderful trubute and i know that it was wonderfully taken. it probably brought tears to her eye's that strengthened the bond between you two.this will probably make blood sisters of you.

    Damn, this was deeply thought-provoking for me. It took me a moment to wrap my head around this. But, I highly enjoyed what you did here. :)
