While it lay heavy-laden with dew.
I stood staring,
astonished and unmoving.
Sheer splendor.

Today is my birthday.
So, I decided to come out from behind the camera.

I didn't get all dolled up.
No cute outfit,
no makeup.
I showered.
In preparation of taking the munchkins to school.

I was busy.
Washing clothes, filling the dishwasher.
A mother's chores never end.

So, even though I hate having my picture taken.
I took a few.
In honor of my day.
