today, beauty was born

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
--e.e cummings

To the woman who brought me into this world, and danced on her bed when she was told she'd have a daughter.
et maman
You have been everything to me, since I dragged my feet behind you through foreign cities, my legs half the size of yours.
You are impulsive and yet thoughtful. Artistic and yet logical. A reflection of myself and of everything I love. A dancer and a sinner. My everything.

Happy birthday beauty. I love you as always.
