Poem 0147: birthday 2

When you look on each bud in the garden,
It’s as if it were the most magnificent
Painting, in the most auspicious gallery,
By the finest artist.

It is this way of looking that I suspect
Gains you such a magnitude of creative
Flow. You seem to always have another
Idea, another wondering, another intuition.

At times I long to look at the world
Through your eyes.
You see beauty in a way that makes
Me want to suck in
The air in gasps; to beckon my aging
Body to come alive with wonder
And let that be my food for a day.

May you long continue to drink in
Beauty through your eyes.
