time capsule

sisters

I had a time capsule once.
buried in the earth
a dead flower,
a pink bracelet
and a feather.
So many more things
remained
but were not hidden.
Your love of night;
Our stories after dark
in our small bedroom
with the heavy curtains
and orange flowered walls.

My love of morning
and light
and the sound of your flute

-were tiny pieces of childhood
preserved
imbedded within the fibres of memory

along with the laughter
and lessons

and tears.
Even through some stormy waters
we survived.

Moving through the waves-
you helped me,
rise above the water
so I could see light -J.Hamilton
