Receive your present


Seize this prize moment,

cash in your winnings and spoils.

Luck’s temperament

plays her pendulum mood-swings.

Her metronome ticks,


losing your seconds

that could have been precious hours.

You may never recover

from losses you earn-

in the time you have burned.


Feel the wind’s quick breath

as it whizzes through your hair!

See the color range

through nature’s masterful art.

Hear her network sounds.


Count the daily smiles

among the people you see.

Light up their world to

with gifts you willingly share.

Yield surprise returns.


Happiness is found

in each moment we relish.

The bitter and sweet

in aftermath come to greet.

Glad tidings they bear.


Cherish this moment too my dear!
