a million various singings/versions
of the birthday song
some of which i sing along to myself
(happy birthday to me)
_______

the neverending
screamy loud tooters joke
which becomes the trail name
that the group of us adopt

_______

sistermoon rising up over the ridge
to hang with us
on our way down the trail

_______

misosuri leaves, marigolds and zinnias
bursting from a mail-fetched box
_______

birthday cake [mara’s chocolate caramel cheesecake] candle glow
illuminating brilliant spirits and their brilliant faces
gathered around the birthday feast table

    ¡Te agradezco a ti! Admittedly, these photographs have inspired for recollections of ramblings in (an admittedly different, climate- and species-wise) a wood near my MeeMaw’s home. It would be great to find a non-urban location to ramble, even if on established walking trails.
