Doorway to a birthday

May you have
a colorful door that opens
into a place where
you feel at home –

A sturdy mailbox for
connections with others;

a window to catch sight
of what’s going on in the world;

tools to clear your path and
to water the seeds you plant;

a porch to
welcome strangers;

a comfy chair in which to rest
after a day’s work --

And, most of all,
may you always feel

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Every wall is a door.
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
