Poem for a Friend

Happy Birthday Carla Milho πŸ₯³πŸŽ‚πŸŽ

A lovely lady from Lisbon, Portugal, Carla is a wonderful writer and a dear friend. Please visit her site to wish her a Happy Birthday πŸ‘‹πŸ»

The time has come to celebrate
Share gifts and cake and love
Wishing all the best for Carla
With blessings from above

At forty-six and in your stride
The world at your command
The time is now, to seize the day
Pursue your dreams as planned

So eat your cake, and smile and laugh
This day belongs to you
And share good times with all your friends
Some old, and some brand new

Poem in Response

Carla is often a source of inspiration for me, to which, having read her writing yesterday entitled, “Ballerina“, I offer this poem in response…

So beautiful your words
As the heart from which they flow
Your precious spirit true
Dancing eyes of green aglow
