Letter: Seize the day

‘Carpe Diem’

How shall I seize this day
azure skies and snow clad peaks
shimmering sun splashed streets
words and thoughts bid me to stay.

How shall I seize this day
in winterscape stark and spare
when life’s sweet memory
draws me to a quiet place.

How shall I seize this day
in a summer fading flower
the fortunes of each hour
will not come this way again.

How shall I seize this day
shadows passing everywhere
death holds each one at bay
without pretense or despair.

How shall I seize this day
when by some mere happenstance
behold the cosmic dance
in stunning luminosity.

How shall I seize this day
yield to its impermanence
once simple innocence
time enfolding blessedness.
