Life - High Noon Poem by Darwin Henry Beuning

Life - High Noon

Rating: 5.0

Our lives are filled
With Critical moments,
I call them
High Noon moments.

You're driving down a street,
Suddenly a car swerves into
Your lane,
High Noon moment.

You're hiking on
A steep mountain trail,
You slip,
High Noon moment.

Be Aware,
They can happen at anytime,
Day or night
At home or away.

'Do not forsake me, oh my darling, on this our wedding day'. I LOVED that song and that movie. Thanks for the sweet memories.

A good and thought-provoking poem with images that make us stop and think! I've experienced high noon moments in a car and heard of hikers who slipped and fell to their death. The poem reminds us to be aware. Good job.

Right on, Hank. When our High Noon moment comes, will we make the right choices? Food for thought.
