Sixteen Candles

flickering flames
reflect on the surface;
the pools of
your eyes,
to their depths
i have descended,
plunging deeper
in search of air
you breathe,
into
my
very
soul.



It is T's birthday today. Sixteen candles adorn the Krispy Kremes. Before you think ill of me, there is one for each of the birthdays we have celebrated together. Figured that was an act of love in and of itself.

Happy Birthday Baba!

Happy birthday to T! 16 birthdays together? It took my Dad 3 wives to get to 16 candles! LOL!

Happy B-day, T. B, I'm glad you explained that those were Krispy Kremes because I thought you had to make 4 cakes.

Happy 16 birthdays together!

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt, as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear, as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

Belated birthday greetings, but a modern take on your words.
They are so romantic, I sigh with the need to read them again... and again. You are so talented, Brian. Don't ever let it go to waste.

Happy Birthday to T! Brian, you rock with the Krispi Kreme cake. Well done...

You are brilliant with the donuts! Happy Birthday to the love of your life! What a wonderful idea to celebrate only the years you are together. This means I will be subtracting 21 years from my age!

Hilary said...

That's a lovely and romantic gesture (unless of course it's because you forget her actual age). ;)

May you share many more birthdays together. :)

Lorraine said...

Hi Brian:)

Very beautifully composed with lovely word pictures graphically drawn using the minimum words for great impact on the reader. Fantastic !

The photo is very impressive with the candles burning bright and clear spreading brilliant light all around. I am sure you will celebrate many more birthdays together. My belated birthday wishes to both of you and many more wonderful birthday celebrations.

Have a nice day Brian:)

You old romantic you :) Happy Birthday to your lovely wife (we know she's lovely because we see her through your eyes)

Good luck with the computer stuff :)

Baino said...

Very happy birthday. Interesting choice of cake! You're such a romantic devil! And 16 candles, much more subtle that total birthday years. They don't make cakes big enough to support my candles!
