Poem for her 71

Dear Readers,

Roses are Read Two

Two feet ran over the floor dripping water as they went
Two wet feet slide on the kitchen floor
Suddenly there she is in my arms
Fresh out of the foot bath
I had made for her just over there
In the space next to the kitchen
Called eating space
Not a separate room just a space
She was the designer of the place
I had helped build the table
She and I had made the table clothe
She'd been in a foot bath just a while ago
And in the future many more just like it
Feet soft and wet and later
Massaged and lotion applied and cared for
Roses in the tea
Rose petals in the salad we had for lunch
Roses are read for two
And now you

Happy Birthday Babe,
