For Dana



For Dana -
As the Eighth Brings Forth the Ninth

Tonight an anniversary
of a love and gentleness that floated
hovering still - in each soft spring breeze
whispering through each day that the Sun
sets and the Moon rises
And soon –
as night inevitably follows day and
light shall always fill the sky with dawn
Arrives her birthday -
This small child blossomed to
full-grown womanhood
Under the embracing branches of
a Grandfather’s tree
of ever-life and love
Love now
 opened wide
as so many
others rush in
with their
forever love
smiling faces,
good wishes
and forever –
full balloons
to color
the very
with joy

Happy Birthday -
