Birthdays- Rictameter Poetry

Years pass so very quickly

Birthdays


Lightening fast

One after the other

Years pass so very quickly

Youthful, glowing, sparkling hue complexion

Incandescence diminishes

Spring, summer, fall, winter

Seasons evolve

Birthdays

Perfect time to wish my dear friend a happy birthday.

Rick Springfield, at any age, is a sweet gift to us all, dear Ruby.

Hoping the upcoming year is as special as you. Love, mar

Did someone say birthday? Is there cake? Happy Birthday. Yes, they go very fast. Not like when we were kids.

Hello Mar. Another birthday, seems like I just had one not long ago. I had a good day. I don't think you follow Manatita, he put the most beautiful birthday tribute to me. He is a wonderful poet. I think you would enjoy his poetry. Thank you dear one. Love you...

Ruby, I know I've commented before, but you are so very good with this style. I wouldn't even know where to begin. The music is a sweet harmony of the poem. Happy Birthday, dear one! You know, there is an unwritten law that we begin to count backwards at a certain age. It goes with the territory, and we've earned it. Hugs. :-)

Happy Birthday, Ruby! Another one rolled around for me too at the end of January, and it seems I just had a birthday. You're so right, they are coming around lightning fast.

Fun poem. Enjoy your day in celebration of YOU!

Love your music choice too.

Here's to another year full of blessings

Cute! Charming! Succinct! Exquisite! ...you put it so well! I performed my poem Growing Older; Glowing Wiser at two different places. Very well received.

Just seen this Hub as we're five hours ahead, so another Happy Birthday is in order. Never grow old!! Much Love, Ruby.

Hello Clive. This type of poetry is done in syllables, so many per line. It's fun to do. Give it a try. Thanks...

Hello Genna. I love dong syllable poetry and you would too. It is nine lies, so many syllables per line the first and last the same name. Thank you so much. I'm glad you like this type of poetry. Hugs.

Happy Birthday Ruby.

I dedicate this poem to you.

"Living Revisited"

----------------------------

reading, content within.

writing, is inspiring.

smiling, is amazing.

understanding, nature of things.

waking up, thinking,

sleeping, on nothing.

loving, everything,

being, human being.
