September Baby; Celebration Pie

for Riana

Peach sky, and blueberry pie.
My baby’s birthday, she’s twenty-five.
A quarter century, and from that moment of birth
I loved rocking her, now she’s rockin’ the earth.

Feisty and tender, a complete painter’s palette.
Keen on her limits, but, oh, give her a challenge!
An artist, a scientist, smart as a whip –
She colors our world with fashion and wit.

Who knows what’s next, some amazing creation –
Like the autumn sky, she’s my sweet celebration.
