Birthday Haiku


On the day we're born
more light comes into the world
through our shining souls.

My Jewish birthday
is the thirteenth of Tishrei.
This makes me happy.

Birthdays are good days
to look back and look forward,
take stock of our days.

Friend, I am grateful
for your celebrating me
on my day of birth.

Anniversary
of the day that I was born
I should celebrate.

Not just a number
that's a lie that people say.
Every birthday counts

I like this one best. It rings of the first-person present tense that I enjoy so much.

Since I cannot comment as wordpress, this is my link:
