Prompt: Time

timelessness
a birthday call
old ties sprout
____

After so many years, I called up one of my closest friends from middle school with whom I had lost touch because of me shifting to another city. It is her birthday today and I, on the spur of the moment, picked up my cell and dialed her number. Had I thought for a few more seconds before dialing, I would have ended up sending only a text message. Yep, that is how it happens. Just a little more use of brain can spoil the fun. Anyhow, her reaction..ah! It was amazing. It took her some time to digest the fact that I was on the other side of the phone. Sigh.. Old ties, after all.
