The Now




it is the here
it is the now
it is
what it is
rummaging
through existence,
remembrance
clutching to
what could have beens
might have been
was
is
euphoric matter
compiling continued
what can not be undone?
substance
it is the here
it is the now

  1. Oh yes, the Now, the only moment of them all which can be persuaded to do anything. And yet, What's Been keeps whispering in my ear, distracting me. ;-)

  2. This reminds me of some song that I just can't place right now. This is great, and to top it off, the picture is awesome, too. (Though I do have to admit that her hair reminds me a bit of the girl from "The Ring.")

  3. Kay,
    So true and said so well... here and now is the only time and place where we truly exist... yet so many times the mind wanders...

  7. it is about here and now, but for me the perspective of eternity gives the present moment the most meaning.

    your words, evocative as always.

  9. Sometimes it is so very hard to quiet the chatter of the mind and just be in the moment. We all have moments of what ifs, but should always let go of what we have no control over and move forward taking only the good with us.
    Happy weekend.......:-) Hugs
