Carpe Diem

The minute you are awake

have a positive thought.

Pluck the day when it is ripe.

Every moment on this earth is precious

whether we have many winters left

or this is our last

Feel the warm sun on your face

but trust in tomorrow as little as you can.

Waste no more of your precious life.

For while we are talking

envious time has ebbed away


Carpe Diem

Sieze the day

        Love it. Too often, I lay about in bed getting up the motivation to start my day. Sometimes, tho, I just jump out of bed and seize the day. It's amazing. It's always such a joy to start one's day with enthusiasm- so Carpe Diem indeed!

        Each of us PHILLIP ~ irrespective of our circumstances ~ is granted a pristine 24 hours every single day of our lives. Why do so many people waste time ? When it's gone it's gone. Thanks for reminding us ~ BRIAN
