A wisp of stardust
drifted as seeming detritus
cast from the Sculptor’s masterpiece
of suns, planets and meteors
until this cirrus of infinitesimal iridescence
merged with your aura
imbued with ancient hues
that map the destiny of kings and prophets.
Tomorrow, February 7, is the fourth birthday of grandson Rocco Bonifacio Senelly. He shall be embarking on his fifth year on this planet. Happy birthday, dear one.
