Time never stops. Every second that passes by will never return. We need to live in the now.

Lovely! Startlingly original imagery in a succinct thesis on modern life, individual angst, love, or any number of interpretations that your poem suggests. What a rich imagination you have there Davy D.

    Thank you Mel-ania, I am humbled by your kind words. There were many thoughts going through my head when I wrote this one so thank you for picking up on them. I prefer your description, rich imagination, to the usual one of madness lol πŸ™‚

Oh my, this is good, Davy–and I watched a “message” by the author of The Shack (are you familiar with the book?) that spoke of Now. He noted that his grandkids are totally in the Now, today is all they know–we lose that when we’re taught to be responsible by worrying about tomorrow. Excellent post, my friend!

Clever and true.
Those moments that slip by while agonising about moments…
That’s why God invented Merlot and other such wonderful things πŸ™‚
Cheers!

this is how I feel most days and so look forward to slow days. wanting time for talking and just being. not rushing about. these are the finer things in life we are so missing out on. lovely thoughts as always Davy. thoughts I can think over and see reflect in my own life scenes.

    Thank you for your insightful thoughts Gina. It is difficult in these days to find those peaceful moments. I read somewhere that Buddhist monks practice for years to experience a moment of stillness in the mind, so it may be something out of reach for the rest of us.

      I agree! theres too much chaos and over stimulation we become immune or rubbed raw by all the hectic activity. what a lovely thing it is to just sit and meditate. on holiday I spend time doing nothing just to recover my battered soul. always a joy talking to you Mr D.

      It is great that you can find that little oasis of peace Gina. And always a joy to speak to you πŸ™‚

Yes. Now is certainly where it all happens. I do wish it would stop sometime, although I suppose that would mean we’d all stopped too. Not sure I’ll be happy when that time comes. A lovely piece of succinct writing, Davy.

Great poem.
Do you find that when you’re writing that time weighs less upon you? Certainly when I’m in the zone, either painting or writing, the sense of time leaves me and I am elsewhere, then when I stop it is like waking from a dream. Some people call it flow.
(Got a bit deep there!)

This piece is quite a ponder, Davy–rather visceral, the feeling of desperate running to catch the Now. I think we have to learn to just sit still and Be There. Great write, as always πŸ™‚

“Chasing after Now…” how poignant & clever! This really depicts the challenge for our human brains to just be & stop trying to attain something, anything!

Thank you for sharing your poem, Davy. You put a smile on our faces with thoughtful words. Mind full or mindful, just be and you are fine. πŸ™‚
Have a great weekend. x

Kind of life itself in a nutshell. I mean, this is what we want, isn’t it? To feel alive.

Love this. So true how time gets away from us and we want it back.
