a miracle


Today, 

an undisclosed
(but very distinguished)
number of years ago,
a tiny boy was born 

2 months prematurely.


He developed

a serious case
of hydrocephalus

and the doctors weren't at all sure
he would survive
to be normal. 



Happily,


they were right,
but not in a way they expected:

my Farmer

is anything
but normal,

and I am so pleased
to be his wife
and the mother of his children
into whom 
he so tenderly
pours himself.

Happy Birthday, my beloved!



my Farmer at his farm, with his banjo & the produce he so capably grows
