Eclipse Poem


Eclipse

Today I am free. I’m a bee going back to its hive,
a spider destroying its web, the earth’s crust
pushing upward. I stand tall, rising
with the burning, aching,
irresistible
sun.



Live for the Love of it,

Happy 12th Birthday, Danny! Acrostic


To our dear boy on his big day
We raise a toast: may Danny stay
Ever so kind and gentle, for
Love makes us strong -- it is the core.
Veer not from love -- it is the light,
Ever so gentle, kind, and bright.


Live for the Love of it,

"I'm thankful..."

"I'm thankful for dependable perennials."

Happy Birthday, Friend!
Wishing you the blessings of life's constants: family, friends, faith, hope, 
and love.


Though annuals adorn earth's face,
their charm cannot compare to grace
of trusty flowers that appear--
no matter what--year after year.

In health, in sickness, sorrow, joy
they're hope to every girl and boy,
they grow like faith with passing hours,
like love they bloom -- those trusty flowers.

Let life be filled with things that last,
that keep us anchored, hold us fast.
Let once again a hymn be sung 
to good old things -- forever young.


Live for the Love of it,
Sasha A. Palmer (aka Happy)
