Lady of the Lace Parasol

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.
