Wishing (a Tanka)

My birthday keeps generating the gift of poetry. Here’s a Tanka from John that has a wonderful message for all of us! ❤

Darkness of His Dreams

Wish upon a star
Blow your birthday candles out
Nothing will happen.
Act on your dreams; make them real
Like magic, your life will change.
