Birthdays - Poem by Jherrie Rubeyiat

Try counting not
in days, nor years
nor presents...
Count your peaceful
times, your joys and
awareness of God in
Measure in the slow
sure unfoldment
of your nature
In the growth and
richness of your
Birthdays are but
Pauses to celebrate
the progression
of your soul
