A Parent's Advice To Stay Away From Hawks on 30th Birtday of His Daughter


If
All your days are exciting
And different
As you
And all that is yours,

If
A birthday is for remembrance
and an embrace
of love and life,
Thirty 
Is a figure of speech.

With
Much or little meaning
As a hawk
On a night-in-a-gale,
even to a  nightingale,
In an alley, 
Or by a window pane.

GRANDCHILD (1)













ARRIVAL OF FIRST GRANDCHILD

Her fashion has changed
Forks and routes of travel through Life
No longer on her face

Just a sense of wonder
Wondering of birth and of new routes
Not for herself

For new fun, new joy, new fortune
A  new puzzle piece
Found anew

Like parents, children, companion 
To be coveted
To keep covered
Fulfilled

Even fed

To be shown the horizon
And images of all the ages

For him to set his stage 
And write a play

                                                          reflect on
                                                          significance of being
                                                          one of
                                                          something 
                                                          from nothing

                                                                               that the final aim
                                                                               is to join
                                                                               and then 
                                                                               nothing
