Note to self

birthday shadorma
To find perfect ripeness, catch it (Nguyen)

Midsummer –
seems the sad-eyed Fall
has inched in
year on year
how long ’til we see April
weep buckets of bloom

Fly by night
the waking hours
I recall
still quite young
something like a wilful end
in February

you’ve ages to rock
up from birth
this July
blow the count of candle light
drink in each moment

  1. I am detecting a birthday too…and so I will Happy Birthday if it is you Laura!

    Sometimes I feel ‘sad-eyed Fall’ catching up with me, but I am with the poet….I’ll take April weeping its buckets of blooms! Enjoy your day….

  2. Love the imagery throughout, but those last three lines are my absolute favorite….so wise and poignantly worded 🙂
