#298 of 365 – 4 Haiku

4 Haiku



just a few candles

code for the number of years

too big for one cake



birthday dance; my feet

no longer moving as fast

as the passing years



forgetting to pray

for the homeless and hungry

my steak overdone



am I heavier

another year’s memories

weighing on my mind?
