Simply The Moment – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” Abraham Maslow

Simply The Moment

Some of today we gave to many futures,
then we fell into our living memoirs of 
triumphs past and things best forgotten,

∽ but the interlude was so glorious ∼

where we held against all polarities,
stopping time right in its dual tracks
by simply observing the moment.

  5. No it is not the same rock and when looking them up found similar “rocks” everywhere. Quite spectacular.

  6. “…simply observing the moment.”
    So often we spend too much precious time thinking of the future or the past, missing the gift of today’s moments.
    Your words are life-affirming and beautiful.
