On Birthday

The following haiku poems were inspired by a request from a friend who was having a birthday in January. She requested a poem for her birthday. I ended up giving her a couple. Finished them in 15 minutes. What can I say? It was a challenge, and plus, she’s a dear friend, an angel. So the words came out effortlessly. These were originally published in January 2016.


oh what’s a year for?
only closer to the earth
says a wise man once


oh what’s a year for?
if maturity knocking
make sure let it in
