! ! 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.

A poem full of life and realisation. It's about just enjoying life with the time we have. Not to grasp, hold or attach but just touch and when the time comes, let the moment fly. A moment in our life. Wow! I love your poem. A hundred marks!

Learn with the moment gone past to live in the next one. You have conveyed a very philosophical and meaningful thought in such a light way......Well Done Bob.....10/10.

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....
