Rosemary, on my 65th Birthday


Joris John Heise

My age bespeaks deep roots, the day-by-day
Of growth beneath small, slick veneers of seem—
My hidden seeds of search, defining dream-
and-valor, truth and fear, spent work, raw play.

Your presence snips me like a tree, or clay—
Our lives attaching us, in-harness team—
We spread toward stars, to universes beam-
ing energy and joy, a cosmic ray

Igniting whole new lives of love like ours—
That germ, that sperm—it speaks past here and now,
Effecting gorgeous gold delight and powers
For generations yet to live—a Wow!

Of trees and time, past terrors done and spun—
Where faith rebounds, where spirit sought gets won.
