Today is it My birthday Wonderful start Lots of fun things to do Even on a Tuesday Good meals Good dessert Saw a post from you So excited after such a long silence A reminder post Reminder of all I’ve lost Pain
I am a tiny green bulb I push my way up through the cold earth Up, up, up Air – finally I sprout, growing Toward the sun Stretch, stretch, stretch I swell, I ripen Out comes my color Small at first Then bigger, bigger Pop my petals Shoot out Bloom
A barren tree, I stand alone. Frigid breezes rip at me. They have been here before, They show no signs of abating. Some day I might lose a limb. Some day when the wind howls and Blows its roaring breath at me. I will break and fall, Down, Down, Down.
