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!
