The Moment

The Moment

The Moment

It was the moment
I had
Waited for
Wished for
Longed for
Dreamed of
Forever –
And then…
I just stood there
And let it
Pass me by
Like I had
Never waited
Never wished
Never longed
Never dreamed
Of that very moment –

I sat on the curb
Of an empty street corner
Listening to the
Dragonflies laugh –
The sparrows in the willow
Gossiping
Behind my back –
The blue jay
Screaming
At me
As if I had
Stolen
Every egg
From her nest –
Squirrels
In the white oak tree
Throwing
Acorns
At my head…

I returned to my apartment –
Gazed
Into the mirror
My own eyes
Staring
Disillusioned
At the
Fool
That stood before them…

……….but it was just a moment…
One
Single
Solitary
Moment 
Lost in time
Like so many
That had come
Before it…

Somehow –
I managed to smile
At my own reflection –
Though a part of me
Had been lost
While standing there
Watching
The very
Moment
I had
Waited for
Wished for
Longed for
Dreamed of
Forever
Walk away
Before my very eyes…

I reached up
And pulled
An acorn
From my hair
And suddenly –
I remembered…..
Life is nuts

    • Thank you Eric… glad you dropped by and took the time to brighten my day. It does seem that the older and perhaps (wiser?) I become, the more I recognize how precious each moment can truly be.

      Hope your day is most beautiful…
