Birthday Girl Thanks

Birthday clouds drift slowly

On the garden floor, a green apple
I bite into it joyfully..

Two autumn leaves settle gracefully
in the palm of my hand;

A light breeze
and they blow away
like the candles on my cake -

Thirty one - I made no wish!
No need.
My birthday,
a garland of love songs,
perfect and complete.
