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
