such simple words that show a complicated message so nicely.
it's like it is better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all.
just to be a moment for a moment...as poets we are in our moment now.
and what is left...is left for eternity...once we are gone.

I appreciate the brevity, and I think this kind of short verse is extremely palatable on social media platforms. The condensed and immediacy of the lines is very effective.

Not to be all flattery about form though, I do feel 'to he's is a bit vague to be impactful. This is half a hamlet quote, but I don't feel we're talking about shuffleing off that mortal coil!

Either way, I enjoyed your poem, and I'll be reading more in future!

Read again after a year. A simple statement with much depth. Those moments are important, they are part of the whole tapestry. Once they have been lived, you can't unlive them. They are with us forever. Good morning Neville. Brggh, it's a bit chilly in these parts.

Long John's Neville. That's yer answer. That's all I'm gonna say :)
An eternity of non-existence awaits us anyway. So it makes sense to make the most of it now. With all senses full on. Nice poem says I

Great wisdom shared in the poetry my friend. I agree. We must enjoy the good moments, we don't have many. I enjoyed these words and thank you Neville for sharing your wonderful and worthwhile thoughts.

thanks again
Life is short. What a revelation?! Right?! I minored in profundities, while majoring in banalities. Nev, as I read your poem I was reminded that I might have never been . . . and then what can I possibly say about this poem!? Life is a string of moments hung together with A GOSSAMER THREAD. I'll enter eternity with a brand-new chain of events waiting for me. The best of both worlds, I say!
