55 - oh, my star & doughnuts

the great creator
plucked a star
from the ether
to set aside,
not on some shelf
to gather dust
next to last years
bestseller or some
forgotten knick knack
but a special place
awaiting the day
she would set
in my sky
warming all my horizons
in a luminous autumn glow...
happy birthday my love!

Tell a story in 55 words. Give it a try, or just read more, go see g-man.

Yeah, it's T's birthday tomorrow...tonight I will build a cake out of Krispy Kreme doughnuts...I did name a star after her once...that way I can look up and see her, where ever I am...smiles.

The Bug said...

I was going to comment on the lovely poem & say happy birthday, but now all I can do is stare into space & drool. I would like a cake of Krispy Kreme donuts. I'll have to tell Dr. M - but then we'd have to have a party because if there aren't other people to help eat them I would eat them ALL LOL.

My favorite part is where it says it wasn't meant to gather dust "next to last year's bestseller".

Very sweet.

Thanks for doing Friday 55! :)

Mine's been posted here since last night, but it's taken me this long to visit and leave comments. Sorry about that.

she said...

very sweet. God gave me an autumn sweetie, too. I named a star after him, also. I wonder where that certificate is - that was 15 years ago (thanks for the memory) btw, love the donut cake. they closed the krispy kreme by us - very sad.
