seize, seizure – word play

BGIPadNov2014 3140

Mind being a curious
Critter tends to suffer
seizures any old time!

Seized
By wanderlust as it is,
It’s of a terminal kind

I’ve often heard tell
“carpe diem” – strangely
Mind stays ( un)seized

It tends
to “carpe noctem”
flapping own batwings

starry stillness, moon free
or flooded provides ample
zooming space and time

Often being in jaws of such
seizures , we open our pocket-
books, take hikes!
