    Birthdays-time goes forward, not backwards,even though we might long for the past.

    Thanks for reading, everyone. No fair that the two 'ku offered in the comments section were better than the original. :)

    Aurora,
    _I thank you... your complement_!
    _My haiku(ish) response simply indicates a parallel thought. Its importance is... that that thought was caused by YOUR haiku.

    _To Judith, a toast. I raise my glass and nod my brow_!
    _M

    I think that I've read this in Lary's site, simply haiku and Mokitta. Nevertheless, I feel that I am reading it for the first time. Simply stunning.
