Birthday Wishes


I shall not be pushing a letter through the window.
Times are such I leave a wish wrapped in a shadow.
If your breath wills you may find it whispering by your tresses
Or hiding scared, yet longing to be found in your closet full of dresses.

It’s going to be a beautiful day until the end of time.
On such a day I put down a wish wrapped in rhyme.
I let it go so it finds you and softly pulls at your skirt.
I taught it to quietly tag along until you have a heart.

It may rain here tomorrow but it would still be your day.
The clouds they may not know of any other way
To make you look up at them when you’re busy thanking everyone.
And if it is sunny tomorrow, I will pray to the sun that you always bring the Sun
Anywhere you go.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
