Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting #2


I wrote this poem today after gleaning inspiration from this photo I recently took.  Lately, more than ever, I have learned to enjoy the “right nows” in my life.  We are always rushing things, thinking that something in the future is the big thing that will finally right our world or somehow perfect it.  We have to live for now, cherish each moment with our loved ones.  Time is fleeting and we never know what today, much less tomorrow holds.  Be blessed!

Time is fleeting, time is flying, and time is promptly rushing by

While I sit and wait for “moments”, the sun is setting in the sky

Wasting the now, biding my time, as the important event; it draws near

Losing the present, while lost in the future, forsaking the now and the here

Might I live in this moment, embrace this fine hour, presently finding the bliss

Making beautiful memories today, on which I will soon reminisce
