B is for… Because

(Pssst… new here? Welcome to Alphabet Salad! For background on how and why I got involved in both NaPoWriMo and the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, check out this post… and, if you’d like to catch up on my progress to date, my challenge posts are tagged with Poetry from A to Z. Glad you stopped by, and hope you’ll return!)

Blogging from A to Z April (2010) Challenge - B

Because your blue eyes twinkle

Because your compassionate heart aches
for that cat in the alley who just might be a stray
(and you’d save them all, every last one,
if only you could)

Because your off-the-wall wit glitters
razor sharp, lightning quick

Because you scatter peanuts and seeds in the yard
for the squirrels and birds
(and probably rats, too – you don’t discriminate)

Because you laugh easily,
bringing the rest of us along for the ride

Because you want to share, long to give
even when you don’t have

Because you have overcome
Because you have unrealized strength
Because you are you
