Happy birthday, dearest Jennifer

Happy birthday, dearest Jennifer / by Laura M Kaminski

for my beloved cousin, Jennifer Stokley, on her birthday

If I could take the world, brush it gently
shake all the hatred off humanity
if I could fill each ocean
to the beaches with compassion
and turn up the volume on the sky
so you could hear the song of sunrise
if I could make this earth entirely
a gift of peace, joy, love and beauty
I would wrap it in a prayer and send it
(labeled fragile) as a gift.

all my heart, all my love


–Laura M Kaminski
