    A unique way of presenting the Past, Future and the Present....! Thus we see the Present sandwiched between the past and future! (Report)Reply

    Laurie's comment was so well written I feel intimidated to be sitting here trying to say something insightful. Whenb I read it the first time, I finished with a smile on my face. I appreciated the neatness of the twists and flips and it made me smile to be in the presence of a man who could wax philosophical in a witty and poetic way and I say... Hurray! ! ! (Report)Reply

    I like the poem. At first sight it seems so simple
    but reflecting on it, the wonder of time is truly amazing, isn't it?
