It feels like a milestone birthday. Perhaps fully “over the hill” but not yet to the next decade. This Typewriter Rodeo poem celebrates 45 for what it can be.
Turning 45 — for Celina Vincent
I have great news
is the magic age
Your latest spin around the sun
Is poised to gift you with
and the real
Forty five is knowing just enough to finally know
how little you know
Forty five is expansive ideas
and the drive to learn something
Forty five is the comfort of being you
Or the discovery of your next evolution
or a tasty mix of both
Happy birthday =
May forty five be the spark
for the joy and magic
That you bring to our world
