When It Was My Birthday

When it was my birthday we had a day of highs and lows,

Up high we went out for a delicious breakfast of cinnamon french toast.

Down low my girl fought nap time and made me want to cry,

Up high we made for the downtown shops for my shopping spree surprise.

Down low a hummingbird fell dead at my feet from the sky,

Up high I took his picture and then he snapped back to life.

Down low my girl fought bed time with the persistence of a shrew,

But not just before a baby turtle hatched before my eyes… then two.
