For My Mother On Her Birthday

Of the many special happenings of my life
Of the many beautiful things experienced
Stands out the cadences on my lake –

Brought about by the drops
The most beautiful of drops
That taught my soul to awake –

To the poetry all around
Available to the seeking, the sensing
To those waiting for daybreak –

From the overflow of her soul
Rained a sublime shower
Blanketing me in the pitter-patter –

Of joy, of courage, of strength
Of faith, of hope, of love
Of all excellent matter –

Now also overflowing in me
And will forevermore
As the ripples of my mother
