HAPPY BIRTHDAY TERI NICHOLS

A SWEET LIFE
(however bitter)




Sunshine trickling through
The branches gently swayed
By a silent barely-detectable breeze,
Like your sweet life sifting
Sifting through time
Like powdered sugar, sprinkled-dusted
On a dozen warm donuts in the cold
Heat of winter,


On a dozen warm donuts in the cool
Heat of summer morns.
Yes, sunshine trickling
Trickling through
Like sixty five years,
Years of a sweet life.
