The Year In Review

Another birthday celebrated—
that candleless
cake a blueberry muffin.

Both of us on all fours—
a garden toad and I
exchange startled stares.

Activating a motion sensor—
an astute spider waits
for what the light attracts.

Glued to her mother’s side—
four fingers blossom
in answer to how old she is.

At sixty-four and a half—
an unexpected treat,
a guilt-free afternoon nap.

For the first time in years—
an eight minute mile,
fueled by jagged lightning.

An October moon’s revival—
a lone cricket’s encore
despite a dusting of snow.
