! ! A Moment

Rating: 3.0
Just a moment.
Yes, a moment in time,
A moment in your day,
A moment in your life.

To act, create
to grieve, to cry
to smile, to laugh.
to love, to hate.

Do not grasp,
do not seize,
do not hold,
do not attach.

Its past, it’s gone
it’s not alive
its dead, it’s done.
So leave it now.

Sir, it is so sweet, it is so true. A moment is a complete saga of life in itself, enjoy it or kill it. Regards, CP

i had just read another poem that states that the true present is but a nano-second! ...everything else after that has become the past....

“To act, create to grieve, to cry to smile, to laugh. to love, to hate.” “Its past, it’s gone it’s not alive its dead, it’s done. So leave it now.” And the moment is now past. Excellent..............10...........

A moment in time may last a lifetime! in a little moment's chime i made this short rhyme. Hey Bob, have you ever considered being a scriptwriter for movies.

Great poem, Bob. The talent is to take the mundane the inconceived and shed light. Love it! !
