for Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge  #209 Old&Days

This is a reflection on my upcoming birthday when I enter the decade of the eighties.  This is my first attempt at 5-7-5-7-7, the Tanka form.
I used Older and Today for Old and Days.

Pleased to be —
With her friends at eight
A party, a cake, balloons
Pleased to be older.
Many decades pass.  Today–
eighty, pleased to be alive!

  1. Yes, wonderful to be alive. I too learnt about haiku, Tanka and other such forms of poetry in WordPress. They are such fun. It is really fascinating to combine the thoughts and the number of syllables.
