The Miracle Of A Moment

A week?
A day?
An hour?
Time enough
For excellence
A moment?
Too little!
Too swift!
Too short!
Too brief!
Not so
Not right
Not true
A moment?
It’s enough!

Pregnant with possibilities
A moment
Overflowing with opportunities
A Moment
Saturated with significance
A moment
Rich with reality
A moment
Bursting with beauty
A moment
Loaded with life
A moment
Encoded with eternity
A moment
Maximize every moment

    Every moment passes many things happen: some one be this, some one be that; some one is born, some one dies; it ends, that starts; thus happening goes and goes, no end, ..... this is the miracle of time / great truth of creations,

    A poem above par.
    'Maximize every moment' - is the essence of the poem.
    A moment's thought is sometimes just enough, to change our lives. A thought provoking poem.

    All one needs to be what he wants to be is just a moment, nothing more.
