Note to Self: The time is now.
Savor This Moment

Today is everything.

Yesterday only lives in your mind.
It is finished. The past is past.
Consider the past nothing but
a vapor trail across the sky,
unreachable and unchangeable,
let it fade away.

Tomorrow taps us on the shoulder
then runs away and hides,
just beyond our reach,
leaving us unsettled and anxious.
Allow the Prankster Future to hide,
He will show himself soon enough.

Today is everything.
Your senses live in this moment --
Touch a leaf, hug your friend, pet your kitty;
Smell the fresh air, the flowers, the bakery;
Savor your food, quench your thirst, enjoy;
Hear the music, tune in to others, relish silence;
See sunsets, pursue art,
search for the soul in people's eyes.

Enjoy today, this moment,
It is your life. Live!
