Happy Birthday!

Summer birthday for Maggie Jewel,
heat and haste, gifts and noise and laughter,
shining eyes and dress-up clothes,
the old, old song with cake, candles and clapping, 
all of us watching, singing, remembering, 
making our own wishes as she breathes at the fire,
fragments of connections that clink and shine,
strangers and friends joined in this moment, 
like sea glass in a wooden bowl,
stirred into kaleidoscope songs 
by our love for this darling girl.
