Find Your Moments



Jupiter hangs on gossamer string

While laughter fills the cooling air

Each firefly a chance to hold close

That amazing thing called life


The scent of wild-flowers steal

Any thoughts of worry or woe

Sun hides below the horizon

Its work being done for the day


Thoughts may turn, as thoughts do

To what tomorrow may hold

Yet this very moment begs

That you live it to the fullest


Nothing waits in the wings

More important than right now

This brief interlude in time

Must be born in depth and soul


Exhale the day and calm your mind

Let nothing come to bear

Just each breath drawn deeply in

Your connection to the now


Little moments are all we have

Strung together like pearls

Each a beautiful, wonderous thing

If you can find the stillness within

  1. So many (including me!) are so busy living in the past or trying to sculpt our future that we seldom take time to stop and enjoy the splendor of a single moment in the present! Well written reminder!

    Oh, wow. I needed this today. I’ve been struggling with feeling lost & wondering what my purpose. I want to carefully select a career path that ensures my financial well being after my husband is gone, etc.. It’s hard not to get caught up in all of that, but you’re right, what’s important is now. I’ve been holding onto those little things that bring me joy and remind me to be in the now. This poem, is now one of them. Thank you, Brad! 😘

      I am so glad I can bring you a moment of pause in all that is going for you. Stay centered, stay focused on what is important, stay strong, and stay well! Love to you both!
