Blooming


                                                             
                                                 you once stuffed  coins &
                                                 colored stones, gems you
                                                 said, in your pockets--

                                                 but today, as I  red-letter
                                                 the ice cream strawberry 
                                                 cheese-cake and light it 
                                                 with   bright   candles-  
                                                                                      
                                                 I  see  a  blooming  rose, 
                                                 priceless gem in our eyes -

  30. Happy Birthday to your lucky family member! We grew up on a rural street with tar and then a layer of gravel laid down each spring. As soon as the tar stopped bubbling (!), we'd treasure hunt for the sparking colored bits of gravel. Thanks for a look homeward... lovely. Amy
