For The Moment

For The Moment prose poem

Photo by _Mairod

Tenuous and stretched are our links
Precious, yet an incomplete jigsaw
Making it arduous to reach a
Safe heaven of human interface.

It can whither like the autumn leaves
Wearily sinking like the sun at dusk,
As if there wouldn’t be another day.
Yet it may sprout new leaves in spring.

And smile again like a new dawn
Where the moment is cherished like
Water in the palm of one’s hand,
That lasts only for the moment.

Yet its hope can knock repeatedly
At dreary doors of a human heart,
When the rays of its warmth, shine,
Melting away any haze of doubt.

Even if it is just a misty chimera
I want to capture it in a corner and
Let it hang in the cupboard of my
Memories like a happy skeleton.

This Love is fleeting, it is desired desperately, but it will not last. This moment is all we have, just this moment and then we are left with memories.

Savi Mani

Lovely poem, yes this moment we all have and it has to hold preserved in our palms of life, as long as it is there……let us try to live this moment to its fullest and when this moment becomes a thing of past, only sweet memories are left with no regret……….lovely poem
