My Name Is …

V.J. prompt this week is to explore walking in someone else’s skin or to see something from a new perspective.


Let me introduce you to my sister.

Some may think we’re twins, but we are very different.

She is usually the calm one, walking the given path.

I am the risk-taker, the passionate one, changing direction as it suits me.

She thinks she knows it all, but I know nothing. I’m still learning.

I thrive on spontaneity. If I see an open window,  I jump right in.

We work in the kitchen together. She does the cooking, and I create the recipes.  We work well together, until I step in and add an extra ingredient. She starts to panic, and curses me for changing the rules.

Enough about us. I tend to have my head in the clouds and have forgotten my manners.

I must introduce us by name.

My name is Destiny and this is my sister, Fate.

    This is so inspired, Olga! When I got to the end, I had to go back and read it again – how true it is. Well done!

  3. Fascinating poem! Olga, you make their characters and the contrast between them tangible, visible. The last line is so suggestive! Thanks for sharing that.

      Thank-you, Paul. Happy that you connected with my character descriptions. I’m grateful to my muse for suggesting the kitchen scene. While Fate is busy cooking up life, Destiny is observing and may throw in a new ingredient at any time. 🙂
