lucky 13

13 of 30


she was born on the 13th day
of the 3rd month
the most Pisces spirit you've ever seen
it's all that water...you understand
she swims in it
& me a solid Cancer
our home can be quite turbulent...
saturated in emotion
...as I'm sure you can well imagine

but she's the purest heart
with a penchant for mischief
{I tell her she gets it from my father
a man for whom she says she weeps
though she never met him
...not strictly true...she was just too young to remember...
}

graced with a steely strong sense of justice
that girl is a cherry bomb
...disguised as a sparkler
think twice before you ignite her
when she sees a wrong...
her instinct is to right it

perhaps that's why she's my lucky number
I love her more than anything
...it goes without saying
every time I felt my world fall out from under
my daughter reached out
...& saved me
