Happy Birthday! This poem is beautiful -- I especially love the line "waving a happy, frantic goodbye as if this is only a short road trip."

From one Taurus to another: hope your birthday was as good as mine (on the 15th)!

I, too, carry secrets and mysteries in a jar around my neck...but I don't run anymore--I can hardly make myself get up and walk!

Good poem!

Happy birthday. I hope it was wonderful, and that the next year and all the coming years have wonders in store for you. The poem is a marvellous statement. And no-one has mentioned the cake! How lovely!

Happy birthday to you...you provide inspiration at every age! I love the "final look over my shoulder/with one final prayer tossed in the wind,/I turn and take off/in a mad, breathless sprint." This is how we should welcome each year.
Love,
D.

I hope it is a wonderful year. My present - A deepfelt wish that you publish some poetry together with your beautiful photos.

And that you sprint straight into the those waiting arms.

A very inspirational embrace of a new year. I particularly liked the line,
"She has secrets and mysteries to share.
She carries them in a jar
around her neck."

Thanks for sharing!
