Haiku 288

(for St Teresa of Avila)

Laboring, laughing,
Waiting to be pierced by the
Ecstatic Arrow

And you are more wonderful,
Patrick, my dear friend.

Happy half century, Mr. Vaz. I hope you are pierced by an Ecstatic Arrow.

Patrick J. Vaz said...

Thanks all. Today is in fact also the feast of St Teresa of Avila.

Yeah, and I have to share my birthday with Harvey Milk, who just got a California Harvey Milk day proclaimed, not to mention Richard Wagner, but my feeling is f--- them both. It's my birthday, not St. Teresa of Avila's.
