Geri's 100th

I wake as usual today and had my herbal tea when I remember today is  my birthday.  Oh my goodness, am I really 100?  How did this happen? I awake to a dawn  older than I  Since turning 90, I pinch myself every morning to be sure I am still here.  Yet I forgot this morning of all mornings! All my relatives are gathered to celebrate my birthday. Again, I wonder is this reality or am I a figment of some god's imagination? Oh well, whatever. . . relatives gone another dusk nightbirds

What a wonderful age - great if you still are mentally and physically able too enjoy your life:-) My mother comes from a very long lived family - her great great aunt lived to 111 and 121 days and was in the Guinness Book of Records:-)I really love the haibun style Thomas:-) hugs Jan xx
