TODAY

A Poem by LinBin
"

Today is about the here and now.........

"

TODAY................

 

 

Watch the clouds move in the pale blue skies; they’re majestically dancing before your very eyes;


Listen to the sounds of nature at your door; the birds are talking to you like never before;


Smell the electricity charging the air that you breathe; Take a moment my friend to truly conceive......


Touch the fallen leaf from an old oak tree; Feel the truth of its beauty now set brilliantly free...


Life is but a moment to be lived day by day; Living for the here and now is the only true way;


Tomorrow is but an unknown far away land; not ours to predict or even completely understand;


Today is the unknown present we open with trepidation & glee; Today we explore the meaning of ‘’me’’;


Never lose a single moment to discover who you are; always be true to your own guiding star;


You matter to the universe my friend; for you are the beginning that has no real end;


Your soul is a gatherer of lessons learned; it lives on when your body is buried or burned;


Death is a doorway to another new day; so live it wisely and live it your own way;


Never forget to listen to the sounds all around; for a day is a lifetime just waiting to be found!

Could tell from your BIO that I'd love your writing, and, this for the first of your posts, is more than beautiful. Can one call your words a prayer, a mantra, a dreamworld, an imagination that gently sees what's hidden..

Enough of my feelings and thoughts. Your writing is softly subtle, elegant and obviously comes from a special heart. Hard to choose a favourite phrase or area .. but, maybe this, ' Touch the fallen leaf from an old oak tree; Feel the truth of its beauty now set brilliantly free... '

very wise words indeed. told in verse and thus made more poignant.
smooth writing. leave the "here" and "now" and stop worrying about tomorrow.
such a pleasant and enjoyable read.
