My Special Birthday
Last month I spent my birthday
with my daughter in LA.
Oh what a wonderful day.
We did things she knows I like to do.
Spending time around water and nature too.
We went to GriffithPark and walked along the creek
It is one of my favorite places to see.
We went up to the Observatory
and saw the displays of things in the Universe.
It seemed a great experience for both of us.
Outside, the grounds was a beautiful site
as hummingbirds flew over our heads in a fluttery flight.
Back and forth and all above us.
They seemed to be making a special good luck fuss.
One came so close and settled on a bush of red flowers.
He sat and looked at me
as he made bird noises for almost an hour.
I know he was communicating with me.
Though I couldn’t understand his words I knew
he was saying it was great happiness I would see.
It was an awesome sight and experience for Vicki and me,
And it made us happy as can be.
Later we went to dinner and had a great meal.
We ate good food till we had our fill.
Then as a nice surprise the restaurant gave me
my birthday treat of a brownie cake
with Happy Birthday written on the plate.
I shared it with Vicki like we always share
I am really glad she took me there.
I love the birthday gift she gave to me,
It was just what I wanted
and she didn’t know that you see.
She is intuitive just like me.
It is a good fortune cat and I am into that.
It is a birthday I won’t forget,
because it is one of my very best yet.
Thank you my dear daughter Vicki.
