|| birthdays ||

Birthdays remind of receding days
they shorten the life of dreams
snatch some wishes
fill an emptiness of life which cannot be filled
moving feet complete the perambulation of life
each year

Eyes wish to cover
beloved faces with the
joy of cordiality that
is scrubbed away by
the grazing of interests
through the year.

On a birthday
smiles wish to soak-up
the happiness off each laughing, congratulatory face
as the lips know the
hollowness of the smile

At the birthday celebration
held between warm palms
there is a wish to forget
all hatred-despair-animosity
knowing well this transient meeting
is rightly meant to turn into forgetfulness
