Happy Birthday 

Happy Birthday!
That is your 80th!
All is quiet.
All is unreal.
All is virtual
Whatever it means.
All my children and grandchildren,
All twelve of us are virtual on the Zoom screen
Perhaps except me and my wife besides me,
And perhaps the special birthday cake my wife bought on line
and the birthday balloon, a bouquet and 80 Prov1 golf balls
my daughter sent me and I'm looking at.
No, there is no difference, virtual or real.
Virtual is real. Real is virtual.
Like light is particle and wave.
Like life is living and dying.
Like life before and after this Pandemic.
No, there is no difference, virtual or real.
Birthday is birthday!
Celebration for life is real truth regardless!
Celebration for love and family is real truth regardless!
In the middle of Pandemic, confusion, chaos and
deaths all around me,
On the 80th birthday of mine
I really need to wake up to find out 
what all these disturbances are about.
O, God help me!
