That man in a cave, at the edge of a cliff, meditating, or medicating,,,,,rattled by arthrithic bones sneaking into his mind, creaking and groaning under the weight of time, a birthday thought for someone special.


God, has it been that long,
And not a day you lived,
You get up, and go to bed,
And in-between you have some bread,
Six or seven times a day you pray,
Do callisthenics, a little work,
That’s how you fill the day,
From June, again till May,
In your mind you live and die,
You fret the day it is to be,
Though, here it’s been, all along,
Your mind, it sings that song,
Another birthday, like a canyon or a rift,
Another edge grown in your mind,
Now soon, the jig is up you think,
Sixty eight, is pretty near the brink,
By the promise of the stars of hope,
A spider web of time has caught your wings,
Last efforts and a struggle you might wage,
More and more you’re wrapped in rage,
A good wind might blow you over,
Free you, for a fall with tangled wings,
Down below the canyon sings,
Of ghosts, of times eternal springs.©09/11/2010

You're as young as you feel I guess, or as old. Nice good spirited kick in the pants to your friend who seems to need it. Patrick

Introspective and also universal in scope of meaning expressed; thank you for sharing your philosophical outlook, Jasmin. Love and peace to you,

Another birthday, like a canyon or a rift,
Another edge grown in your mind

How we all looked forward to birthdays as young children; how many of us now feel like you describe above, at each new one. But, we carry on.

"Another birthday, like a canyon or a rift," there's a real thought, one of many great ones in this work, Jasmin. You're not afraid to look and evaluate nor to tell it as it is.
A fine piece of writing.
