Apr 11: A Flower for Jen


Apr 11: A Flower for Jen, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Turning Sixty
Seems last year we celebrated fifty
We both agreed it was a productive decade
building a home
building relationships
Watching our children launch

Jen is paving the way for me
As I follow in a few months
So I'm sending a flower
To my friend Jen
To trumpet the festivities
To smile on the occasion
To celebrate the beauty
Of turning sixty

  2. Love the daffodil. And happy birthday Jen from me, too. The line 'watching our children launch' really resonated with me. My only one will take off from home base next autumn.
