Living in the Moment
By Don Iannone

Never a day shall I weep,
Each precious moment I shall keep,
While weary I grow and so I sleep,
In my dreams life does seep.
I shall not tarry or fret too long,
For to the moment I do belong,
In so doing there is no wrong,
So there my life sings its song.
Our sight is bound to a glance,
If we're lucky there's a second chance,
To live it better and so enhance,
The life we live in joyful dance.
Look past yourself and you'll see,
What's good in life and also free,
If you're willing to just let it be,
Each moment goes on for eternity.

One has to capture the moment do you not think Don? Like a shooting star tumbling in the night sky. Capture the beauty of the moment. Very beautifully whispered. Perhaps our hearts are all whispering for eternal love and joy.
Thank you for sharing your moment. :o)

incidently ... gathering some thoughts on:

What would you do if you were invisible.
3 answers please. No rush post to me when you are in the mood. thanks. :o)

Thanks. If I were invisible, I would:

1. Help people do things without them knowing that I helping them.

2. Be "playful" in ways I would not as a visible being.

3. Pretend that I was visible.

What about you?

trinitystar said...

Ditto for number (1) perhaps transfer monies to those that are in great need.
(2) Fly on the tail of the wind.
(3) playful note ... stand on stage with a great conductor and mimic him ... that would be fun. :o)
Im interested about you pretending to be visible ... do divulge more :o)

beautifully said, don! enjoyed.

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Trinitystar, Polona, and Margie. seems to be our nature to seek what we are not. If visible, we desire invisibility, and if invisible, we desire visibility.

Here is another take...there are visible and invisible parts of each of us. The unconscious is invisible until it is revealed in some fashion. And the visible parts of us (conscious) seem to disappear when the invisible comes to the surface.

Your reply Trinitystar?

If I could love those moments I will be the happiest person on earth...At time what would u like to abide does not happen ....

trinitystar said...

Correct! Very wise Don! :o)
Then one wonders do we wear a cloak of invisibility or a cloak of visibility? Wonder is such a beautiful thing.
Thank you ;o)

Don Iannone said...

Thanks Nasra. Hope you are well. Blessings of happiness to you.

Thanks Trinitystar. Interesting article you referred me to. Ah to be a fly on the wall. Precisely what many have said. Now to become invisible. A new profession of spies (spooks) and other investigators will be born; should this new technology see the light of day.
