A Birthday Game

Sitting at the table

with a laconic grin

the completed project

amused the child within

An adult filled with jocularity

spread the eggs on the table

it was a fun game

stories told by those who were able

Soon after

tossing of the eggs began

the stories got stranger

there were some who ran

Water was added

and some balloons on the way

adults acting silly

laughter on this birthday

A final egg

expressed how they felt

happiness and gratitude

a candle on the egg to melt

Guests left

grateful for another year

as long as there is laughter and love

conquering all fear
