Mother's Two


Two eagles
the elder,
Fearless,
Confident, ready to fly from the start

The other,
more  h  e  s  i  t  a  n  t
developing slowly,
fretting,
struggling to fly

the younger,
once committed
built bridges for others
helping them cross the path

Two eagles together
courageous,
accomplished.
Mother's Joy
Each in his own way

  1. Wow--love the metaphor and the camaraderie you share of your boys and how they are both successful and true eagles, each in his own way.

  2. Congrats to both! I am amazed at how different siblings can be from each other-even when twins!

    You must be so proud of their accomplishments!
