Fantastic imagination, equitable style
10000 years to live alone in the planet...I like it
I liked this. I liked the thought behind it. And on some days, I really wouldn't mind a small portion of my 10,000 years.
Just a litle bit crude, but I read your biography and loved it. It is so poetic.
we all have all the time on earth......if we would but realise it! John I loved this work .``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````hema
Thought provoking to say the least, we should all slow down a bit and as Linda says smell the roses. Wonderful poem John---Melvina---
Nice piece John. But me too is in a mad rush. I don't know why?
Is living alone a 'choice' - perhaps of necessity, or a rational decision? Interesting arithmetic, my guess is we have less than 10,000 years left. Sadly intropective John, and very thought provoking.
So take time to smell the roses! It seems everything is going faster and faster with each passing year. Maybe the earth has time, but man is on a tight schedule, and anxious to cram it all into a few years of existence, just in case our time is shorter than we think. Thought-provoking write, John. Linda
