a woman...a being...and everything in between
Intriguing words. Enjoyed them.
Thank Anthony, I was not sure about this one. Glad you liked it,
Unique and mysterious take on the prompt!
Growing up snatches the fun out of birthdays. They become kind of routine. I always longed to write this one.
Time indeed waits for none...nice verse!!
True Reshma, every day becomes the same, gifts, cakes excite no more. We receive wishes sent over phones with routine thanks. I yearn for a a real birthday, that special day which doesn't come now.Glad you liked it!
different direction with this prompt...well-done - thought-provoking
Thanks Joanne! I happy I was able to convey through this haiku!!
Demise of birthday - fantastic, creative!
Thanks Judith for encouraging words!
A different take on the prompt! Lovely Meenakshi!Fragrant Memories
Thanks Valli,It is difficult to relate this prompt with birthday, But somehow I felt compelled to write this one.
Wow ... candles blown in haste ... perhaps scarcity of time doesn't let us enjoy the moments of our lives peacefully ... well illustrated :-)
As children, we blow candles in haste as we are excited about cake, gifts, friends. But when we grow up, we blow candles in haste as birthdays are no more than routine and pending jobs weigh us down.Thanks for reading and liking!

Good one yet again Meenakshi.. the way we see our birthday's change indeed as we grow older..
