My annual Nan's Birthday post. Wrote this in 2000, I think.



A Dance Around the Lighthouse

Candles don't give off enough light
to find the words to spell out
how she beckons, how her
meaning thrives; this girl's
alive and that's not
just poetry.

Once I followed her to a
blue page somewhere
in the midst of destiny
on the edge of a cybersea.
And now, because I saw her
name on a screen
and rediscovered triple meanings
of words and phrases
and my thesaurus with
dog-eared pages,
she's probably one of the reasons
my real work is verse on napkins
in a plane on the way to Cape Cod
or stopping in the aisle at the
grocery store in the middle
of shopping for pasta
to grab that phrase or word
that must be written down.
The 9-5 thing just funds it.

And the thing is, I really don't
quite know how to say thank her
except to follow all the others
down the rocks to the other side
of Falmouth somewhere
'til we see her light shining
bright from the window at the top
of a red and white lighthouse,
trip up the boulders to get there
and dance around until the sun
comes up over ocean foam
splashing salt in our faces
to wake us up because
it seems so much like a dream.

So, here I am with the rest,
dancing 'til dawn,
rationale gone,
elated to say I knew her when
there was something
very special going on
and she was a major part of it.
Today, she is the lighthouse,
and when we all heard, we
followed the rays coming from her window
to gather 'round
and dance.

Another trip around the sun, huh, Nan?
Good going! Happy Birthday!

All I know is you better not be at the Christmastree Shop without me?  Oh well, what the heck it's your day, go for it!  Just don't tell me the deals you found, promise?

Great poem Doreen!  I miss Cape Cod daily and have threatened to return sometime soon.  

Happy Birthday Nanners - Remember, there is NO place like home, and you taught me that!

A very happy birthday to you, sweet Nan.  May this be a year of reaping some of the great seeds you plant here.  

I like Doreen's poem.  

Thanks for letting us know, Sharon.

I hope you have a wonderful day

And so it those we live with
and should know who elude us
But we can still love them
we can love completely
without complete understanding

I am so grateful to each and every one of you for taking time to stop by and wish me well.  These past few months have kept me so preoccupied and limited my available forum time, I'm just overjoyed that I haven't been forgotten by you all...

Thank you for this thread, Sharon - and for the reminder of 2000 and our wonderful poetry, Doreen... and  every single one of you for being as wonderful and thoughtful as you are...

Uhmmm....I guess it's still forbidden to fish overthere???

Hope you had a wonderful day dear friend. I'm still getting homesick thinking of Cape Cod and the time we spend together.
Who knows...one day I might be stepping out of that bus again.
