Happy Birthday Poem for Piet Radford, 83 Years Elder today!

Happy Birthday wishes to
Piet Radford, 83 an elder today!

Deep gratitude for the great pleasure
Of your company these past few years!

All the best for many more years living
(as you say) ‘your dream’!

With Aroha and respect

I went to look

For a special YouTube video
From my library to send to you,
And found the perfect one.

This is called a ‘3-D fractal trip’,
Using very good computer software
That’s based on Mandelbrot mathematics
(fractal infinities).

The 3-D solid-looking ‘architectural’ structures
(which as an engineering man you’ll appreciate)
Are being constantly ‘fleshed’ in and out
By other 3-D similar forms ‘growing through and receding etc.’.
(and hence it’s 4-D really as we’re including time).

Anyway – have a cup of green bush tea on me
And check this out. 

For one wise man and never-grow-old inspiration
Who is young enough and still kicking (ass)
At his age to know what ‘trip’ we are talking about here.

And it’s the perfect present
As it’s what you’ve helped me realize.
Life is ‘Like In A Dream’.

Frodo Achieves His Mission

Well done, Frodo my cat.
‘Frightened Frodie’, scaredy-cat,
‘Frodo-dodo’, ‘Frodo-mojo’,
Mister Frodo, beloved cat.

This morning I saw in our interaction,
you have achieved your mission;
from frightened Frodo
to Frodo the Super-chilled cat.

You were one of a litter of five,
where your four siblings were
put down by the SPCA
for being too feral, too feeble.

For your mother was a stray,
(and your father who-knows-who),
and you have found your way
and survived your frightening journey.

From ‘Frodo more-backward-than-
forward shy cat’; to approachable
and approaching Frodo with Mojo,
beloved and loving cat.
