In the Moment~by Paul Lenzi



In the Moment


“Turning Point” by Gabrielle Matser

live your life
in the now
not the then
nor the when
here and now
in its present
perfection of
heady vitality
duly immediate
taste it and
touch it and
tuck it among
your retrievable
see what the
moment may
hold in the folds
of its purpose
breathe deep
of enriched air
fleetingly offered
to lovers of time
built from
intricate instants
each one quite
unique and unlikely
to come
back around
if you miss it
you might just
have missed
your one chance
at a turning point
catalyst given
to stop-starting
life with a veer
in direction
a fortunate bend
toward tomorrows
who but for that
singular moment
could never
have made
themselves known
we become
from experience
all of our private
eternities stem
from ignoring
or noticing
pinpoints of time
