POEM - Birthday

Today,dear Friend,
Wonder Mother -
Sister Embrace -

Today
I faced the gravity
Of your birth -

Of its weight and girth
Of its importance in everything.
In the worlds you hold up;

In the post and lintel love you share;
In your frailty but especially in your strength,
All gift wrapped, curly ribboned, taped.

Today
You came to me
As a whisper of joy

As a shared cup of gratitude
In just knowing another pilgrim
Who shares the search, I am better off.

Today, dear Friend,
Wonder Sister,
Mother Embrace,

You were born
And even the cold November
Morning seems satisfied.
