This morning i had the urge to run franticaly with my camera and take pictures.Pictures of every one and everything i see. Blue dawn, pink flowered trees, small birds in flight, quiet town. How do you capture a moment long enough to see all it has to offer? To reflect its richness. I find myself longing study the fine details that bring everything to harmony. And we just pass thru on to somewhere, God knows where, and miss so much. Breathe in breathe out smell a rose, breathe in breathe out eat the strawberry in front of you.
And mourning… those chances gone as i stood (in the now) as one transfixed, hypnotized by the future. Moment my moment. Now gone. Swirling eternity unchecked.
Many days i do not even want to sleep for all that i could take in if only my eyes were not closed. Yet even there, there is a moment, a soft lit awakening and a chance to quiet my mind. And I pray to be always steeped in the now that I might not miss any moment. We are now.
