So Much To Love and Life Is Too Short and Make the Most of Moments

PAD Challenge day 9: Time for our second Two for Tuesday of the month!
 Pick one prompt or use both…your choice!
  1. Write a love poem. All you need is love.
  2. Write an anti-love poem. Or not.

So much happiness in one wee flower
So much life in the lilt of an hour
So much sunshine in spite of the rain
So much pleasure to sweeten the pain
So much joy in the presence of friends
So much beauty; nature’s compliments
So much potential sifting like sand
So much to love in the moment at hand

Life is too short to un-love you
to miss the thrill of the old
to find in the grind of kindness
a pocket lined with sheer gold
where the heart, like a vault of treasure
shimmers beneath our skin
where life is too short to measure
the mementos tucked within

Make the most of moments
simple as they seem
these soft-spill the sparkle
that fulfills the dream

Make the most of moments
slipping like silk stars
through the flue of high noon
into dusk-blue jars 

Make the most of moments
sun and shadow kissed
tomorrow today's brunt
will be yester's mist
