Double Helix

My morning routine is his.
Early to rise.
Coffee to go.
Periodic refills
from his aged, dented thermos,
reading the day’s news
before work starts.

My life view is hers.
The early rise gives me time
to sip the coffee
and watch the world.
To listen, be silent, be still.
To learn whatever lessons
the world is ready to teach me today.

The three of us
have our differences.
But in all the ways that matter,
we’re one and the same —
the strongest
of unbreakable bonds.
