for little sis

curtains draw,
the audience quiet.
walking step by step,
to that aisle all know.

in this place,
that silent walk.
a show anticipated,
now complete.

i know not the world
that awaits, beyond.
double doors;
this theatre, that world,
these two legs
firm and filled –
with vitality and service.

here the stage,
there the stage!
drama unfolds.
response folds.

gratitude and grace,
homage to unity:
of creator,
and created.

We are the sun.
