Moment

All there is is the moment.

Now.

Plan ahead by all means,

leaf through photos,

But,

Only now.

 

Pain in the present,

Happiness,

Fear.

 

Worry is corrosive but, usually about future or past events –

did I, will I, should, could I?

 

You die in the moment

and are born into the moment;

 

Sun shines and warms your body

Now.

 

Comfort.

 

I am puzzled by the question you have posed me

and I continue

To think about the solution

for days to come.

Tomorrow,

the day after

and

the next.

 

Only now.

My heart beats now.

My pulse rises and falls

Now.

 

My breath quickens now.

 

Will you, won’t you, come this way or another;

 

Laughter,

Spontaneous in the moment.

 

Deep discussion,

In the moment,

Yet the echoes

Reverberate.

 

In your sleep you are alone; cut-off from the world –

Dreams connect you to others,

But,

Upon awaking

You are yourself,

By yourself.

 

Standing naked

By the shore.
