The Magi of Dadonika

our foreheads pressed together,
our hands held as Twins,
you looked, smiled, closed your eyes,
took two deeeeeeeeeep long breaths,
and then opened

my eyes looked into you
your eyes looked into me
and in a soft, slow, steady gentle whisper,
you said

“happy charadadonika, dad…”
and grinning, “….I love you for Infinity.”

and dooooown in the deep
where the ancients sleep
came magi from the East
seeking King
