Birthday Blessings Bestowed

Me on my 76th birthday

Special days happen

Because people take time

To make them so

Senryu

I enjoyed a very special birthday today because so many people took the time to make it so for me. My family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances all shared their wishes in some way to make the day great, and for that I am feeling especially grateful and blessed!

How Many Roads?

Happy 78th Birthday to Bob Dylan!

How many roads have you trod

In those earthly shoes?

Though worn and weary yet you’d plod,

How many roads have you trod?

Through city streets or soggy sod,

Doin your best, payin your dues,

How many roads have you trod,

In those earthly shoes?

Triolet

The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind, The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

—Bob Dylan

Happy 78th Birthday today to Bob Dylan!

To You

Are you happy to be?

Do you love your me?

Can you say it’s true?

That you like your you?

In honor of Dr Seuss’s Birthday today, March 2nd

“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no one alive who is you-er than you!” —Dr Seuss

Counting Blessings

Number 13

Thirteen

My lucky number

That’s the date of my birth

Glad mom wasn’t superstitious

That day

Cinquain

OctPoWriMo Day 29

Theme: By The Numbers

Most people think the number 13 is an unlucky number but since I was born on that day I have had to consider it positively as my parents always thought me to be a blessing to them and weren’t superstitious.

(Besides, I was born on a Tuesday not on a Friday!) 😊
