Rowena my twin sister, older by 8 minutes, passed away after complications from diabetes on October 3, 1996.

I cherish my memories of our time together that we were so Blessed to share. Her love & Light so embedded in my soul are celebrated with my every breath.

Rowena was a published poet in the American Poetry Anthology 1990 publication.Copyright. We used to dream of publishing together...


                  The Heart Takes Flight  

Ode to White Rock, British Columbia, my home

                                                by Rowena Susan Wilcox

      I ambled the beach ...

      You soared the sky ...

      We moved together... You and I !

      Below speckled stones... lay at my feet...

      Above clouds glistened like fresh- fallen snow !

      It was a blustery day... and the "White Horses" * rolled high !

      I beheld "Your Creation" and gazed and sighed !

      The sky was now half blue ... half grey...

      As though depicting the duality that day!

      The Blue ... the Peace ... the Grey ... the Fight...

      The Love ... the Life ... the Dark ... the Night !

       But the sun shone through in spite of it all

       And lit the " Path "  I knew to be " True " !

       For " Love " will " Survive" ... and " Loneliness " be " Lost " !

       The " Sea gulls " and  " I " ... " Soar High ... Soar High " !

 [ *  " White Horses " : waves ]
