This work celebrates Spring in Seattle and several of my
My Actual birth,
May 9, 1965, which made my Mom a Mother on Mother's Day.
My Soul's rebirth,
upon moving to the
verdant, forested Pacific Northwest.
My Creative rebirth,
the day I was welcomed into the home that I share
with my partner, Don.
House poem a.k.a. " that Monkey Egg poem"
was created the summer of 1982 in a serendipitous moment
my three brothers while sitting on my grandparent's back porch.
"Blue Monkey Eggs" have since come
the childlike spirit of play & creativity.
We must all bring our own four, young,
blue monkey eggs
to the Birthday House!"
