birthday

Today is just another day, but I told myself I gonna goof off and do nothing. Okay, maybe just open a couple of beers.

birthday



again

i look up
from my cup
of noodles,
different time
same space.
outside the house
the city
is awakening
the sun
long-throwing
its beams
through
dusty panes,
light scattering
on the few
extra lines
on my face,
as blackbirds
flutter
their wings
in the dawn.
be thankful
then
that it will
be just
another

day.

Oh, oh! Happy belated birthday, dear! Imagine me letting go of a bag of confetti from the rooftop, making it rain color -- a mosaic for you to step on, maybe do a li'l jig. (grin) That would've been my birthday gift for you. ;) Wishing you more blessings!

That's a beautiful scene -- a priceless shot for any photographer. Cheers.
