On this birthday day

Calm morning
Pedicure pamper
Chatting with family
quiet and   s  l  o w

Windows down driving
Shopping alone
Sunshine stroll
quiet and   s  l  o w

Family together
Dinner out
Talking and laughing
LOUD and fast

Cake and candles
Singing joyously
Cards and special gifts
LOUD and fast

Everyone leaving
Two by two
All is quiet again
exhausted and   t  i  r  e  d . . .

On this birthday day

  2. How lovely! You captured the pace of your birthday celebration. I read your birthday gratitude list yesterday. That is a wonderful idea. My years and list are longer so I might have to get started now. :) Blessings.

  3. Slow and fast. I could feel you relaxing and I could feel the quicker pace. Your words showed what you were feeling.
    Happy Birthday.

  4. It's good that you had both slow and fast in your day, a bit alone and a bit together with others. I hope that you get to sleep - deep and long- to be refreshed tomorrow.

  14. I used your lines in my last slice, a cento poem, a collection of lines from others' poems. I hope you don't mind.
