Birthday poem

Trough a vail I have seen you.

Hidden from sight.

Figures dancing kissing laughing.

The vail was thick.

Until one day I lifted the curtain.

And saw us there in day light in moon light in star light.

Flowers arranged windows flung open, a view to a lake.

And I understood the freedom it gives, the life time it takes.

Beauty amassed.

The picture remains where words end to exist.
