Time Shifting, #haiku

My oldest daughter turned 44 today. Somehow that number doesn’t seem right…

time slip-slides away
yesterdays, now tomorrows
don't forget to laugh

  1. I hope everyone had a lovely day around your daughters birthday Colleen, I so know how you feel, my son was 47 last month, it doesn’t seem possible does it when we only feel 35 🙂 LOL
    Have a great day ❤


  2. Happy Birthday to your daughter!
    Both of my kids are in their 30s now.
    I don’t understand how time works–sometimes fast and sometimes slow. 🤣 But laughing yes!


  3. So you have a 44 year old child. Me too. It’s not possible is it? Your poem reminds us of those feelings I think, and the emotions this unwelcome fact stirs up.
