Bonne Anniversaire to the Potion Lady

I don’t think I could top what I wrote last year for my mother’s birthday.  She’s still doing the same things and it’s such an inspiration to watch her and hope to one day follow in her footsteps.  If I’m half the mom she is then I will have done a great job.  She rocks my world.  When she visits she still appeases me and all my cooking shows, Sex and the City series and movies (she’s that cool), and The Last Emperor (Valentino documentary).

My mother loves poetry.  She has notebooks and binders full of her own poetry. So today, I rely on e.e. cummings to help me say Happy Birthday and I Love You!

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
