Decorations hanging all around

For us it sees a birthday
Holly’s twenty-five this year
and sharing it with Christmas
always brings us all good cheer

Tradition

by Jem Croucher

3 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

It’s becoming a tradition
as this is the second year
February seventeen
and a walk to have a beer
We’re spoilt for choice in Sussex
with the hills to take us there
So here’s to many more years still
this special day to share

Piper in the Weald

by Jem Croucher

1 of 5 in the Jemverse ’31’ series

Heading down Fulking Escarpment
with a piper to herald the way
The entourage headed down to the pub
on this lovely February day
The view of the Weald was breathtaking
as it always is in the sun
The company laughing and happy
and having plenty of fun

Happy Birthday Duke

by scatterednotebooks
DukesFirstDay

Photo by Linda Rose

It’s been a full year, since you first joined our clan
and hid yourself there inside my bag.
You didn’t quite know what to make of us,
all coo-ey, and huggy, and making a fuss.
Our kitchen floor had you splayed on all fours
’til we brought you upstairs to the carpeted floor.

Birthday Request

Pillars of Creation: interstellar gas and dust in the Eagle Nebula, some 6,500-7,000 light years from Earth where stars are born

I asked for the superpower of “Folding” for my birthday.
It cuts out the middle man:
Gimme a calendar with tricky bits, I said.
I’d fold weeks, months, years, centuries together,
jump to any time, past or future.

The first would be hanging with
the first human band to walk out of Africa .

One would think that for my birthday
something yellow would appear
Yet though that’s my favourite colour
Something else gives better cheer

Happy Birthday Emily Rose

by Jem Croucher

IMGP7207

We have a birthday in our house today
it makes us feel quite old
For nine and twenty years ago
when it was pretty cold
a daughter was our first born child
in Brighton in the snow
Back in the last century
It seems so long ago

You gave me life and more
But God had other plans in mind

Grandma’s First Love

by Pamela Beckford

I wrote this a year ago, but today is my grandson’s 5th birthday so it seemed appropriate to post it today.

A Grandma’s First Love

Fat little fingers
Ten perfect toes
Hair like down
And a cute little nose
A tiny blessing in blue
Today a mom was born
Oh, what a special day
It was the birth of Soren

I’ve never met Mary Frances
But picture her as she dances
See her I do as a true Irish lass
Where daughters get their sass.

My Mast Friend !

by Darshan Gajara

Between the tensed, nervous & confused First Year faces,
There stood a Girl one amongst the special cases.

Not worried about the new environment,
Proud & confident of her solid temperament.

Kidding, jerking, fun loving was her nature,
Isolated from the dull alike faces, I found this creature.

People said she’s a Social Guru,
Jaha mauka milta wahi pe ho jati shuru.

Birthday Musings

by Apurva

There’s nothing like a birthday to remind yourself
how old you really are….

As a ONE year old,
You stare wide-eyed in wonder- slightly bemused, a little irritable,

with a thumb in your mouth, somewhere in a corner,

Wondering what the commotion’s all about…..

as your parents go out of their way

to make your birthday memorable,

One that you can now barely remember!

Of all the hearty songs
