Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

On The Occasion of James’ Sixteenth Birthday

on October 19, 2017

Joyous celebration of life in your very being
A spark of creation I hold dear
Making me proud
Energy abundant
Strutting in the Marching Band

Helping me fix Eggs Benedict
Always fun to be with
Running to give me a surprise hug
Tuesday in the parking lot

  1. o the joy
    grandchildren give
    fickle… blunt

    tales… many
    but like yours end in a hug
    grandparents joys

    always fun
    i’ve cried with laughter
    sweet memories

  2. they are the best part of our maturity

  3. Happy Birthday to James! This is a lovely tribute Ina.
