Carpe Diem

Phrase oft used, but
rarely actualized in
many a life.
Such a tragedy!
Its much-lauded
sentiment
transcends time
and language –
With great cause!

How many lives
has it changed?
What decisions made or
ideas birthed by
consciousnesses
caught in its thrall?
If an axiom could
speak, what tales would
this tell? Of
danger courted, or
fortune found?
Perhaps inspired
achievements and
crowning glories?

Grasp your days,
strangle the moments;
Wring all the life, eke
out the beauty you find!
It lies ever before you if
you would only see.
It’s yours for taking.
Absorb every drop as
you sip and savor life’s
intoxicating wine!
