    Who knows when death will come knocking? I died in the back of an ambulance once. No bright lights, trumpets etc. I was given CPR and came back. Up until that point I hadn't really cared about being alive. After that point I value each day. The best thing though is that the thought of dying no longer frightens me. It seems that dying freed me up to live my life.
    I enjoy your poetry Mark. It digs deep. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
