Cookie dough

by on December 22, 2022 :: 0 comments

With precision perfection,
her holiday cookies, in serrated
edged trees, elves and red
mistletoe, confection’s delights.

Mine were haphazard, sloppy
but the tastiest bells on the plate.
We’d battle to be our mom’s favorite.

My rival, my sister, my all time
best friend, with one fight too many,
each waits for the other’s apology.

editors note:

A little sibling rivalry amidst the Season’s revelry. – mh clay
