Living In The 'Now' - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It is said,
To refresh...
Is best.
To be 'in' the moment!
Living in the 'now'...
Within a wholesomeness,
That is!

And observing...
Without a rushing thought,
That sits to orbit.
Only allow to do a doing...
When and what it does when it is due!
And to do 'that' at another time.
When one finds it is time,
For a change of a point of view!

Perhaps tomorrow!

But for now...
That is all there is.
A 'now' one should live.
As if there is only one cycle of breath,
To breathe at one time!
And not try to pace in a race to catch!
