NaPoWriMo #29 Birthday Gifts


 
red-haired baby born
blue eyes ... fair skin
wee Irish lass

August ninth birthday
summer parties every year
one to seventy-one

big brother's birthday
January seventeenth
so jealous


grandpa's empty shelf
fills with grandma's birthday gifts
brown skin dolls

bairn's eyes wide open
looks at warm loving smiles
sees a photograph
then and forever
my gift

Today's National Poetry Writing Month #NaPoWriMo challenge is to write a poem in which I muse on the gifts received at birth — whether they are actual presents, like a teddy bear, a kind brother, or not.
