Six Sibs

Six sibs 

that’re like assorted fruits

from one seed.

I am the eldest,

sometimes bossy,

but never careless.

The second’s

a bit bitchy

yet insanely funny.

The third’s

the most pretty

well, she looks like me! 😀

The fourth’s

a black beauty,

sometimes she’s lazy.

The fifth’s

the only boy,

yes, he’s so playful.

The last’s

our little Jemi,

she dearly calls me mommy.

Yes, we are six sibs,

an assortment of fruits

from one seed.

DAY 47 of 50 Days of Gratefulness

Today, I am thankful for my five siblings. 🙂

They are the built-in bestfriends and babies that God has given me. 🙂

  1. You write strongly and concisely about your sibs. The eldest of six. Good for you–that puts you in charge. I’m the middle of five, which means I never know my place in the order of things. Your poem here reminds of the Monday’s child verse. More importantly, your work describes the built-in best friends (terrific phrase) whom you have. Thank you!
