Today is my 59th birthday. I have selected this image with this event in mind. Birthdays can be happy or traumatic events. They can bring joy or sadness. Go where this prompt leads you.
Does this picture inspire you to write something?

Waiting eagerly for your responses.
Thanking you all for joining this prompt.
Another birthday has come and gone
I am a year older
But am I a year wiser?
I doubt it
Birthdays can be joyous occasions
But they can also be filled
With memories, sadness, sorrow, pain
This year, I celebrated my 40th
During the coronavirus pandemic
What a way to celebrate
I wont forget
This birthday or this year
In a hurry
With a family call on zoom
And a cake with candles
A Jin and tonic
in my hand
As my family all sang
My past birthdays
It was a special time for me
My 40th birthday
And I loved every minute
