Random Poem:

Another year
CrunchyWeta

Forty three.
 1
I have noticed, regardless of intent,
 2
not much seems new
 3
to me.
 4
My daughter, twenty one months,
 5
delights daily, nay hourly
 6
in discovery.
 7
Forty three.
 8
Its a station nowhere. A pre-midlife mellow
 9
wearing halcyon shields of security's illusions.
 10
My setting foundations a little weathered,
 11
I view youthful indiscretions
 12
with just a peak over Conspirators Hill.
 13
I suffer helpless desk attendants
 14
with no power no responsibility no initiative.
 15
 
 
I love it when Bryanna (twenty one of months)
 16
visits upon me her unaffected affections
 17
when Bradin (thirteen of weeks) of throaty laughs
 18
peals away my hard found ernsthaftness.
 19
Today
 20
A heart shaped felt and fluorescent feathered card
 21
guided glued and gifted by mother and daughter
 22
A chocolate muffin with a Pooh candle
 23
The first ever blown out by Bryanna
 24
A handclapped chorus of happy birthday
 25
Forty three
 26
En famille
 27
Multum in parvo
 28
