All I Want for My Birthday


My Love, all I want for my birthday this year, is time with you

up on the ridge,

where we can breathe

in our confidence

letting go

of all our fears

walking through the pine trees

watching the brilliance

of all the leaves

dressed in their colors, dancing

in the wind.

The two of us encouraged

as we walk under the oaks,

maples and poplar trees,

their essence enfolding us,

the smell of leaves

as we embrace,

speaking life

into each other.
