“Only a Moment”

The moment between today and forever 
is a breath released and 
not breathed in again

The “inspiration” for this poem is, of course, my general blog on WP: The Moments | Between: It’s the Moments That Matter. While one cannot record all the moments between now and eternity, it is not futile to record mundane moments as each becomes present.

    1. Thank you. I do work to find the exact wording that will convey what I want to say with the proper nuances. Sometimes it comes easily, and sometimes decades have passed before I’ve gotten it sounding right to my inner ear. When in doubt, I start removing words, rather like playing jackstraws, and when the word pile collapses, I start putting in words again. 😀 It’s something I enjoy doing, the process of poking at what I’ve written.
