Ephemeral Happiness ( Euphonous English WS part#2)

Seize
All the
Ephemeral
Happiness that
Life is offering, whenever you can
For they'll fly one by one 'way in no span;
They'll be drifted
Forever
Away

and ephemeral pleasures, are the product of fertile minds. A mind that is not used, becomes stagnant and useless. I se that you have found ways to keep actively engaging in the world of poetry. Your use of the many forms of poetry, are astonishing.

Writing purely for oneself, is the ultimate in defensive posture.

I feel like I need a new hat after such flattering.
Blushing too :)

Great to have discovered a new format. Seems fairly restrictive and I dig your choice of words given the somewhat limited options.
