Speed of life accelerates
days run to each other
events fade into the past
their colors permanently woven
into the fabric of life itself
seemingly for later use.
Relative importance of the now
becomes increasingly obvious
mind busy evaluating choices
heart silently feeling its path
while the soul is always preparing
for its journey home.

The speed of life.
I noticed that life is now sliding by much faster than it did when I was a child.
And I started wondering why this is.
Then, I realized that I have been overlooking the value of “now.”
When I was a child, I measured each moment with little things like butterfly wings, firelies, and spiderwebs. But, as an adult, I started to measure life from paycheck to paycheck—and forgot about the space between.
What a mistake!
I agree with what you say. The “relative importance of the now” is very important.
Hi Mary and thanks for your thoughtful comment. I’m thinking of this quite often and try my best to stay in the present moment. After all that’s all we have as past is no longer here and the future days are not promised to anyone…Take care.
It’s funny–this year, my colleague and I are really making an effort to be in the moment. To savor what is right now. Is it just a sign of the times that so many of us cannot stop and smell the roses? My focused efforts this year have resulted in remarkable insights into how I respond to people. What a wonderful post Tiny. I think I may be rambling because I am overcome with a fever and throat infection. But I am enjoying this moment of reflection. 🙂
Thanks. Sorry to hear you are not feeling good. I hope your “now” will be much better feeling soon! Take care.
Wonderful lines 🙂
