Birthday Request Sonnet
Creative talent, sensitivity,
Ally with high I.Q. and overview
Responsive to both seen, unseen, on cue.
Magic smile masks spirit wild and free,
Emancipated, which from knowledge tree
New fruits will ever pluck to continue
Challenges life offers, met by few.
A soul holistic seeks the causal key
Rigidity refusing, needs to be
More understood when stripping false from true,
Encouraged on her way: there's much to do
Now as ever to reach harmony.
CARte blanche she should be given, birthday girl.
MEN all agree she shines as perfect pearl.
