How to be beautiful


You are the magical elixir and the array of fountain lights

To the way the crisp autumn leaves color their edges
And the branches crackle in laughter with the snowflakes

You begin where assumptions end and continue where belief pauses
In the way you smile at the silly realities of loved ones
And freshness you stimulate through any air tunnels you ride

You defy the obvious and describe the mysterious
As you traverse the daily traffic
stir the crowds on new crossings
Or hold your breath on rollercoasters

Life caresses the palette you embody within your lean frame and almond eyes
It brings you journeys that are like trailing paths in hidden woods
And also pulls your dreams into a charismatic performance

May you always be the strongest friend to your lover, always be the lesson that inspires stories
May you learn to write with abandon and smile with deep connection
May birthdays only be one more reason to relish ideas of sunshine and make the moonlight your escort and may faith be sealed in your most challenging realities.

May you have the courage to embrace new journeys and may life unfold its beauty in the palm of your delicate hands
