such a beautiful word with meaning; to hope
and rhymes with renaissance
my hope, my dreams for you
a day of new beginnings
 goldfinch greetings as you wake
sunrise kisses
walks along the scented esplanade
funnel cakes; sweet realities
of children grown and settled
flambe''s flourish
a wish for you to prosper
to thrive; to be in your prime
gilded lily;
anything adorned with your signature
will make the gift even more grande!
gold leaf; a wish
your treasured writings
wrapped in leather covers
with silk ribbons
each page dusted with gold
nuances; life's sensibilities
 and keen awareness
keep your ability to express delicate shadings
of your innermost thoughts and feelings
Dreamland Villa;
your eternal residence; the Azalea Promenade
a drawbridge to represent security;
a safeguard for your heart
driftwood; memories polished
like silver carvings
weathered by many storms
intimate whispers; your secrets
only for those with whom
you've shared the

this is beautiful and full of so many images of things that i love (okay so who doesn't love funnel cakes?).  but you truly do hit on some wonderful themes.  I need to include esperance in my lexicon....

Yes thanks for your poem; greetings and beginnings form a good pair.  both start something.  Why does "new" come before beginning?

 feel as though I just explored the city of someones mind with this poem. The draw bridge of trust, the secret memory door for which only those with the password may knock... Everything about this piece gives me a distinct feeling. Even though I can't explain it, I'm glad you gave it to me.
