A moment passed

A moment passed

A Poem by Kimberly "Melody" Carney
"

Each moment is a gift, each second another is lost. Give each moment away on point, nerve to be caught stilling one away.

"

summer dreams 

A moment passed as I walked the old dirt road. Another drifted by, turning to look at me as if it knew me. I looked to the ground and turned my head around, to see if it had left me.I was busy on my way, to do something important today, bills to pay and off to a job to pay my way. To moments, I had nothing to say.Before I knew it the day was done, I laid my head to rest.  I tossed and turned as a dream tormented me. Each moment that passed me that day, now had a face and something to say.I tossed and turned, unable to wake as the last moment came to say. "Today was the day your last moment passed by the way…there will not be another moment of another day." In that moment I faded away.

I enjoyed and respected this piece. Although I wouldn't call this a story per say, but more of a "Prose Poem". It's structured like one and has that rythmic feel. I write prose mainly and descriptive poetry, and it is done very well, but I have to call 'em as I see 'em.

This is beautiful, thoughtful and reflective! So many moments that we take for granted, so much routine in our lives. Who knows when it will tick down to that very last moment? I love this!

Most of my poetry actually is prose...and most of my structured poems start out in prose form. Yet another wonderful moving piece!

Life is a strange thing. Each moment we live we never, ever, ever get to live again. And in one brief moment, our entire life can dramatically change, for better or for worse.

Beautiful piece. It truly got me thinking. Reminded me of a quote by Thoreau: "I went into the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life... to put to rout all that was not life; and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Every moment is our moment, but we have to deliberately make it so.

Thanks for the write!
