Birthday Wish




My birthday’s coming up this May

I’d like a jelly Fish

or a mermaid tail

or fairy wings

it never hurts to wish




Or a unicorn or a pegasus

Or hair as blue as seas

Of shimmering waves

A waterfall

that tumbles to my knees




Although I’m shy to tell you

These are my favourite things

I’d love just a birthday wish

Or what your friendship brings




My favourite flowers

Are peonies

Of the softest

Pinkish white




My food

is peanut butter

I’ll savour

Every bite




My colour

is turquoise green

For my sore eyes

such a sight




My time of day

is dawn

Just at the break

of light




My city

is Madina

Home to

the Prophet’s flight




My perfume:

Hypnotic poison

Scent darker

than the night




I doubt that you’ll remember

But I’m hoping that you might

Send me a thought

Or gift or wish

I’ve helped you get it right 😉
