Here is to another year of life,
Should I be buoyant and forget these years of strife?

 

See my demons are growing more mature,
And I'm still suffering and no closer to a cure. 

 

24 years of carrying this unbearable pain inside,
But today I'll show the world I'm happy and ride this temporary tide. 

 

So happy birthday to me,
I hope these messages from back home bring a sourc...

Salutations for Sally

I wrote this poem for my wife's birthday.

Salutations for Sally

The years don’t pass slowly anymore,

But there’s still time for an eternity

In your eyes, in your arms, your love.

Each moment a step to infinity,

But time doesn’t march, it ascends,

And we rise on the years,

Sadder, yes, but wiser and

More loving, more understanding.

And you lift everything around you

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

entry picture

Today is my birthday

not sure if I'm happy or sad

I'd be glad

if at 30

we started to count backwards

So many candles on my cake!!

I need a FIRE extinguisher...

A Life's Wish

May you wake today
To see light of day
To hear nightingale
When you're feeling stale

May you rise
With sunrise
And seize the day
Without dismay

May you awaken
Feeling unshaken
And start a smile
For a long while

May you forever love
And feel being loved
May you follow your inner wisdom
And be guided to only success

Red Letter Day

The clock
Ticks
 
The minute
and the liquid
Chime
 
Vanilla scent
and gentle oak
Blend
 
The nose is pleased
The lips poised
The tongue
Ready
 
Then thirst, palate,
mind and soul are
Satisfied
 
The nectar and company
shared, valued 
Enjoyed
 
And a birthday
Celebrated

Young and wrinkly

Young and wrinkly

 

You are not getting old

But numerically you've advanced

No, you're not getting old

You're just chronologically enhanced.

 

You are not growing up

But of this much I am sure

To avoid growing up

We must become more immature.

 

We must dance until our joints creak

And sing until we can't speak,

Laugh until our lungs ache

And love until ...

Staggering home alone, intoxicated

From another birthday now belated

Booze translates to insomnia medicated

I used to be an animal but am again domesticated

We Too Hold Truth

A dancer I know made a flag 

 For me

 It contains my favorite colors and

 Holds the spirit of a sloth

Deliberate and lazy

Slow but sure

Hanging upside down

And clear about the difference between

Sky and ground

My flag for my revolution

No nationalistic colors with stripes

Bars animals symbols or heroic images

Represents me - never has

Today Is My Birthday

entry picture

 

Today, the 27th of May, Friday,

I celebrate another birthday.

I again thank God for prolonging my life,

For giving me the strength for the right strife,

For saving me from a danger,

For giving me a chance to understand a stranger.

For forgiving all my sins,

For congratulating with my wins.

Another year of my life has passed.

I hope it is not the last.
