Life-Time


A life-time is not what's between,
The moments of birth and death,
but between my two deep breaths;

A life-time is one moment between
lub-dub of heart beats, or between
flip flop of eye lids... ever keen;

seeing 'n' feeling, opening 'n' closing eyes,
at times time fail to limit the life.

when the present, the here, the now,
That's all the life I get,
I live each moment in full,
In kindness, in peace, without regret.

when I split past, present and future,
more I expect from life, than I get,
anger, envy, pride and desire, regret,
whole span I can't live a moment
life fail to withstand time's assault !

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
