Carpe diem

Do feel the joy of here and now.
Do feel the moment halts
as you observe the high, the low,
alert, not finding faults.

Do smell the flower in the spring,
do taste the summer breeze,
do hear the songbirds stop to sing,
do see the waters freeze,

do know the dogs in action, wild,
as owners stare and smile,
do sense the cats about to be
devoid of any style,

do love the person next to you,
no reason to at all,
do think that person has to do
with letting beauty fall.

Do let the presence occupy
entirely your mind,
experience it, not espy.
And pleasure you will find!
