fifteen years ago,
you were born on the darkest hour
of a dark, stormy day
of the darkest november,
and brought such great light !!!
you twirled out of utero and have been twirling ever since.
you have such capacity
to be lighthearted,
to be happy,
to be free,
that every third step of yours is a skip and a hop.
for my sweetest fifteen year old !!!
