B for ABC Wednesday

birthdays, balloons and pearls

a string of birthdays
one strand of pearls
markers starlight bright

sneaking up to early thrills
milestones by the digits
'til beyond the central high

production backtracks
still pressing forward
she keeps the clasp in sight

Are you still as excited about your 90th birthday as you were about your 9th? :)
