Happy Birthday

i thank you God for most this amazing... (65)

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun's birthday;this is the birth
day of life and love and wings:and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any--lifted from the no
of all nothing--human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

(e.e. cummings)

Speaking of birthdays, I have two sons who have birthdays during the 12 days of Christmas. Tulasi has his today, and my oldest son, Madhu, had his on December 28th. Madhu is a policeman in Atlanta, Tulasi is a freshman at West Virginia University. Madhu has a 5 year old daughter.
