Birthdays. They’re always different. Some go by and you’re glad they’re gone. I have had some that were memorable and others, well let’s just say I’ve chosen to forget. But today, yes, my birthday is today, I am very pleased. Well, one thing could have made it perfect, but, when do we get perfect? Life usually runs like an LP (remember those), the music skips occasionally and doesn’t stay in the groove. So far today, I’ve only one skip, and I dusted it off and continued the song. Wishes came from those I didn’t even know knew. It snowed lightly all day, and the lawn that never got completely cleaned up gently and forgivingly erased all trace. My daughter came and spent the whole day with me. She even bought 3 pieces of cake with 64 candles on it! I had to blow those suckers out quickly!
So, being late, I’m combining 2 prompts into one poem. My day left me pleasantly surprised and I’m feeling very blessed. Enjoying it now for tomorrow it could all change.
When love colors you
Canvas no longer is seen
Age loses all strength
Monday’s haibun (prose with a haiku at the end) for Frank and todays prompt word “groove” all in one. I didn’t count but don’t think I went beyond 200 words.
