Happy Birthday to Zeb

Kaitlyn and Luke were at our house 
when the news arrived,  a baby, 
I napped between the texts,  excitment 
fighting concussion. 

Now,  I ride the bus, 
delighted to be able to celebrate, 
to join in,   a party with four 
proud fingers in the air. 

This mornings picture shows 
him dressed as a firefighter,  the other 
day it was a pink flamingo and 
tomorrow...I wait eagerly. 

We marched together at pride,
 come, please, his momma said, 
three generations together,  he said, 
I want the t- shirt with my family on it. 

His smile embraces me,  twinkling eyes 
shining with possibility,  as he shares 
the stories of his workers,  the coffee 
shop,  a home. 

Living with the knowledge of life's fragility, 
always present,  when reminded of his birth, 
gratitude surrounds me,  to love and be loved, 
an open gift from Zebbie to Gg
