happy birthday, Empress...


Today is your special day!
happy birthday, my 'eartical sistren,
Empress Christina. (big up you self!)

Secret surprises held no more,
i love you, written for all to see,
mere words simply can not express... your
poetry and photos, so divine. your
letters, filled to the brim with love
embrace my heart, for always.

Tropical shores beckons our soul,
home. waiting for you at Fadda Bob's gate
i've sat on his rock - cold ground was my bed last
night and... it was such a beautiful moment. (exhale).
go off, with me, into the warm caribbean sunset
swaying to a reggae rhythm.


*c'mon naw, open de door - dis box o' Red Stripe gettin' heavy!!! xo.

Thank you for inviting me to the party Se'lah. I have left some messages for Christina on my blogs. Although my pages are often sad, my colours will light her birthday heart I'm sure.
This is my first visit to the necessary room and I shall love to come again if I may and so as I listen to Mr Marley I wish you a happy day also.

I could have sworn I'd posted a comment here to thank you for alerting me to this wise woman, her simple things, and the party, but either it got lost in cyberland or I'm losing my marbles! I did a post that included her celebration last Friday, in hopes of generating just a little more love, but sakes alive! She has tons of friends, cyber and otherwise, it appears. What a beautiful testament to a beautiful woman.

Thank you so much for organizing the surprise. She knows in you a true friend.
