The Here and Now

The wonderful sphere of this 'PRESENT' time
Where eternity always lies.
The truth of the beautiful 'HERE AND NOW'
Often stays hidden before our eyes.

We need release from guilt of the past.
Our future should never hold dread.
But how to obtain that magic domain
What has to be done, or said.?

Come with me to the place of 'JUST BE'
Which will always remain in wait
For such as we, who long to be free.
Let's hasten, and not hesitate.

Just put to the test the power of 'NOW'.
Let attention rest solely there.
Not allowing the mind to think - just unwind
And discover a time free from care.

Or imagine small gaps between the clouds.
SEE the vividness of that blue.
Say, inwardly - -'NOW' - and the power of the NOW
Will open it's timelessness too.

Let's stay in that place as long as we dare.
Experience the bliss NOW will bring.
Visit if often-- and soon we will find
Our hearts will learn well how to sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
