Birthday Greetings for our Hostess at Two Paise Poems – October 23, 2015

Happy Birthday!

from a peach
came Momotaro
the joy of life
to his mum and pater
but that is just a fairy tale
and I can do one better:
in an autumn day
a lass came forth
from a pumpkin
round and tight –
she brought with her
light, poetry
and boundless love
so today
we celebrate
her coming
28 years later …
with joy and
many happy returns!

    • Ah … and you did tell me you are in India! I’m meeting myself coming and going trying to catch up with my three day stop! Hope you had a super party … I think I’ve heard about Diwali day from Carpe Diem Haiku Kai … which is a light festival is it not?
