Birthday gift

This simple
haiku for you – my
offering.  

In composing this haiku for a friend’s birthday, I took the opportunity to limit myself to the slenderest of means – the 3-5-3 syllable scheme.

In keeping with the spirit of haiku, I used a hand-made paper into which flower petals had been pressed, then rolled it up and tied it with a narrow charcoal-coloured ribbon.
