Live Out Loud: Our Ilana

The golden-rayed flower of the daisy family stands
tall in garden’s soil.
Mother- of –pearl, breathes and pushes hard.
Tiny baby quietly
enters yelling: “I’m here to live out loud” and
taking her rightly
space on earth’s dirt, as spectators welcome
her arrival gleefully:

These happenings were 15 years in the making
and lay humbly
behind Her Birthday day, July 7,2013.

Symbol of love and happiness: pride and compassion- loves humanity out loud!
“I’ll do it, and tons of “I love you” -sayings that sound loud!
A poet, writer, painters, sculptor, and performer: an artist out loud!
“One love, one heart, one destiny” you can live out as loud as you want.
Happy Birthday! ! ! Ilana/ Na-Na

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
