Sisterhood

Jaibala/ March 4, 2017/ Poetry

We are all celebrating #WomenOfBlogging this Women’s Week. I was wondering what to write about so many talented and wonderful women (and men) I met since the time I have been blogging and writing. The following poem is my attempt to talk about all these wonderful women (and men), who have not only read me, but actually supported me, and raised me up and continue to do so. I am not just a better writer but a better person because they are in my life!


A sense of calm deep within,
All the strength I can find,
A warm hug holding me in,

It‘s never the first time & never the last,
Your voice; a memory, recent yet familiar,

No matter who or where we’ve been,
Each with their own thoughts, their own mind,
Different things to do, and yet a twin,

A bond, a vow unshakable and true,
A single seed from where we all grew,

A thin string of love that ties us in,
A journey to the end that has us entwined,
Seemingly fleeting but as strong as kin,

It always the first and never the last,
Each moment that has come to pass,

Ruling kindly, each suit‘s queen,
Raising the bar, for others we define,
Power, strength and hope we combine,

Happy for the other, helping another,
Pulling each other up is how we get by,

In all that happens within life’s din,
When circumstances confine,
They are courage to stop, leap or begin,

Whatever I need, they are therein,
Sibling, friend, philosopher, guide,
If nothing else a shoulder to cry in,
The best Sisterhood that has ever been.


It’s International Women’s Week & if you’ve written a post about being a woman or a special lady in your life , link it up here & experience this charm.

#WomenOfBlogging Open till 8th March
