Birthdays

My birthdays never cross my mind. I live life, a happy soul, everyday now a blessing. At a poorly seventy three I am lucky, the friends I have lost all far younger, why I ask, why not me? So saddening this modern era the young addicted to the screens, exploited with the promises of a better life, the exploiters do degree. Most unaware, or do not care that their misled, but! But mention those magic words, happy birthday, its just a wish to let them know that they’ve lost another year. They look at me, and ask “Really”, my retort, silence. I walk away, they do not care that there is life outside their little world, I’ve asked, they just want to win their game, to late they realise that birthdays, theirs, not many left.

natures quest for life

magic real birthday wishes

spring life realised
