Birthday Wishes

Today is the birthday of a very special person in my life. She is one of the most beautiful, kind, considerate, comic, intellectual, poetic, spiritually open, and wise people I’ve ever met. She was a gift to me the day I met her and I can pretty much vouch for all that know her, that they feel exactly the same. I carry her in my heart, for she is my s(e)oul sister, and words are heard without being voiced.

So, my darling Cookie, this is for you; happy birthday! May you continue to grow and bloom with each year that passes:

Each evening

with a sweep of night’s air your wings land you there


on the branch just out of reach.

My eyes fall upon your feathered head and haunting eyes;

no judgement is passed nor a look of contempt settled upon my head.

Like schoolgirls we embrace through the frozen pane of glass

the silver of the moon and scent of the honeysuckle bless our union.
