Had a 

Reminder of how short and fragile this life,

this story, is–  hug the one next to you–

and another, and another–

Live, don’t just patter in the pattern.

Make days yours, and I will too–

I’ll be better with my moods and attitudes,

and know that the days are mine and the love is


livelivelive and lovelovelove,

livelovelive with an exponent, exponential exponents.

This is brief, believe me.
