This is for my little sister-of-the-heart, Rosey, who celebrated a birthday last month ~ May God fill your whole year with sparkly blessings, dear one ♥
Lady of the Lace Parasol
Strolls beneath sheer gilt sun,
Grace-filled intuitive feet
Choose their own direction…
Solo for now.
Her mind knits thoughts, words
Into yards of fierce poetry;
Romantic heart bastes scalloped
Pastel ribbon edge, faith’s fine-
Detailed florals embroidered.
She wears gifted talent like gown
With royal train, Mona Lisa smile
Instead of painted lips…and loyalty’s rich
Gem, pendant ’round her throat—
For, family and friends are
Strapped sandals she dances in.
After day is said and done—
Battles finessed, victory secured—
She reclines beneath lace parasol;
Sings exquisite songs—twilight hued
Praise for Creator God—and love’s
Effusing February fragrance;
Lights birthday candles for celebration cake…
The one her faraway sister-friend baked a little late.
