Happy Birthday

Cookie season does tend to munch time, just like we munch
the cookies 🙂
I did not account for that when I renewed my goals for this month. As I look through the boxes (cases!) of cookies in the garage waiting to be sold to all
those who can’t resist the temptations of Girl Scout Cookies (I am one of that
lot but have so far resisted opening them because once I do, it is difficult to
stop and as I mentioned just now,  I have
cases of cookies in the garage!). 
With a birthday to plan for and Valentines to make for the class, this little blog of mine gets lost in the whole scheme of things. But for ABC Wednesday’s letter D, in keeping with the theme I started, here is a poem written in the form – Diminished Hexaverse. 
It is an easy to understand form and does not look for rhyme. It has 5 stanzas. each with decreasing number of lines (and the lines in each stanza with decreasing number of syllables starting with 5 and ending at one). 
Here is my poem:

My Daughter, My Friend
My little one, she

 turns ten today; see,

– ‘was not long ago

that she was tiny

our naughty sweet one..

Time flies by fast,

Memories last.

Tears, smiles, and more

to always store.

The bestest

Helper, and

Sweetest too!

    1. Definitely agree on this, ROG. 🙂 as I write this, I have my 13 YO begging me to open a box of Samoas – my answer – a big NOO.. (for now,once the whole family is home, then at least, we can share the happiness and the guilt)
