Hi. Maurice, Great job. You should have scored higher. Congratulations on your win. I took your advice and tried to ride a motorcycle on TV. My wife stopped me. She said that I was not licensed for such activity but I did find a syringe and injected the Earth with a smile. It smiled back. Have a great day. Earl

Hi Maurice Thank you so much for your wonderful , genuine feedback on my latest poems-- much appreciated. I LOVE this ACROSTIC as it is light, yet speaks to a very important philosophy of life. So much time wasted on worrying about past, and future events, we forget to live the moment with all we have. I did a Carpe Diem too a while back... same theme.. in memory of Robin Williams.
