Life Is A Short-Poem - Poem by Smoky Hoss

Think as you will
of life and death, joy and pain,
with it all receive your fill
for both come, and both go, as surely as sun and rain -

Here to there
beginning to end, and all stops in between,
in a sullen-storm or a frolicking-fair
tis all part of living's momentary little scene -

    Our time on earth is infinitesimally brief, yet we experience so much which comes and goes. For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven..... Good one Smoky. (Report) Reply

    life and death, the same poem written on two pages!
    perhaps a race to return, to end with beginning.
    thought provoking!
