To Viv!

ViV compressed
Viv Blake

Life gives you lemons — time to fix a drink:
Let winters weep regret, down to the last
Unyielding drop, then laugh out loud and wink,
And mix in sunshine, birdsong—do it fast,
No reservations—add some seasoned dry
Good old wit to spice it up, then pour
A nice big glass…a twinkle in your eye
Will shock the starlight pale, you can, you’re more
Than just a stitch, part of this quilted Earth,
You’re the warmth that grows inside, you’re you,
A force that lifts, a sparkling new star’s birth,
You’re bubbly Viv...until we meet, adieu. 

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