On Living Life to the Max

For today's prompt, write a maximum poem...

We never know what a day will bring
so let's live each one to the max!

 These past few evenings have been spent
 in the barn next door...
It reminded me of a song from my youth..
esp. this line
'it's nice to think about it, maybe even visit,
but I wonder, could I live there anymore'.
Farming is very serious business these days,
and not for the faint of heart.

let's live life to
its precious max,
work hard, love kindly,
run, relax

push, pull, pray, play
smile, sing, give thanks
make the most of
spring-green creek banks 

pick buttercups
plant seeds, sip tea
engage in
real-time poetry 

aware of the
far-reaching way
of deeds we do 
and words we say

where finding joy
is no secret 
the more we give
the more we get

where happiness
holds out its key make the most
of you and me

so, let's live life
to its lent max
the same up front
as behind backs

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men,
