Amazing how so few words can hold such power. Great work. Even though you make it appear easy.

    Those yesterdays that we seem to have lost
    Searching for that perfect timeless pearl
    The nets now torn and the boat no longer fast
    And the approaching sunset an orange curled.........

    Brief words, maximum poetry........Keep your pen busy (Report) Reply

    What is said, in an instant, causing regret....a lifetime...and still not quick to forget. Kindness can also make time stand still....PEACE (Report) Reply

    True and to the point no sugared pill, regrets are forever. Better to have lived well and regret nought.10/10 BB (Report) Reply
