MISSPENT MOMENTS



SEASONAL REGRET

Promising starts—lost.
Never a sole chance taken.
Life lived counting cost.

  1. Never a sole chance...never a soul chance. I tell myself all the time to not count the cost, yet human and frail, I am a miser.

    1. Rosaia, some took too many chances when the body was able to absorb the consequnces, but eventually the body rebels at the misspent youth. I can not spend more time on the uncertain.

  4. Mark, I think this is the shortest post I've ever seen you do. At least it isn't sweet. If it was sweet, anything could happen.

    1. Alice i one time posted a one word poem, I have forgotten it now.

      Sweet falls into the category of love poetry and I still have no reason to extoll that particular genre.

  5. Considering consequences is always a good thing; not living because of it UNWISE. Luckily, you have nothing to worry about, Walking Man!

    1. Ily, I have lived a life that is true, I have no regrets. But the excitement surrounding me now, I certainly could live without.

    1. Carleton we are all forced onto a 20' diving board at different times. We can willingly go or reluctantly, but if you close your eyes at the bottom of the ladder and then open them at the edge of the board you can at least cry foul before you jump.

  7. I smiled reading Alice Audrey's comment because I would feel the same. I guess we all pay the price for living, Mark.

    1. Kim I never counted the cost until until I woke to find all of my accounts had been emotied by the coices i have made as time passed with me nothing but a riverbed rock. Adaptation can be a struggle all of its own.

    1. Jean, you, me and Frank Sinatra too. I don't look back at the regrets as much as i spend time trying not to make new ones.

  9. Mark, I am on a self imposed spending freeze. My 'soles' were becoming too costly! xo

  10. I think that most of us live lives counting costs of one form or another.
