Marje and I have never met in real life but we know each other so well! This is an excellent Tanka filled with all of my favorite things. ❤
Colleen Chesebro and I share quite a few interests in common, as a matter of fact we do find that when we do those quizzes on Facebook we sometimes get the same results! This morning we both ended up being like the moon… with a dark and a light side!
It’s my good friend Colleen’s birthday today so what better way to celebrate than to write her a Happy Birthday Tanka.
There will be no moons, dark, or light aspects to the birthday wishes as Colleen’s prompt words: wish and magic are much more suitable for a birthday poem. Colleen is a big fan of fairies, and I’m sure she’s partial to cake, and no doubt appreciates the wonder of rainbows so I thought this might be just right.
A very happy birthday to Colleen, and all the best for a fairy special day!
I wish I could spend…

happy birthday to Colleen
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…

A birthday Tanka from Reena. The poetry explosion of gifts is amazing! Thank you! ❤
How I wish I had
this ability to spread
May you and your tribe grow
To enliven a dull world!
A birthday Haibun/Haiku from Lady Lee Manila! Excellent present! ❤
Happy Birthday, Colleen!
Abracadabra, I wish for you to be here
Fly with the stars and whatever’s there
I believe in magic and all its glory and form
And combed my hair in prospect of the storm
Wand in my hand, you can play in a band
Symbols, mantras and spells, I use as I stand
Out west is where I go, alone in my escape
If not, I comfort myself with a seedless grape
Waiting for you until the sun goes down
The date, at least to me, is yet unknown
The baying was so many miles away
Yellow as the sun and bright as the day
Here’s wishing you all the best
With all our love
