Be here, seize the now. Poetry and Photography, by Joan Ellen Gage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

THE ZONE

While sequestered as a willing tenant in

your self-made prison of busyness

dream of ways you can be free

To give yourself the gift of

a precious few moments, no distractions

lock out your outer life and meditate

Find that it is almost a new experience

as you may have forgotten the sensation

of pure awareness, and nothing else

So used to being the amazing balancing act

you‘ve found it hard to stop doing and planning

and just become still

Discover that one can see so much clearer

when traveling at

the speed of now

 

from the book, Water Running Downhill,

On the Wings of Time

Time Flying with wings 5 lens flare framed

MIDLIFE CLOCK

 

Time

Too much, not enough

Too slow, too fast

Forever tick, tick, ticking

Away . . .

 

Time

We wish it

Here . . .

We wish it

Gone . . .

 

Time

Feel it

Trickling, teasing

Through your fingers

Sifting between

Your toes . . .

 

You

Are the hourglass

Your time is running

Out, tick . . . tock . . .

Half of the sand

Of your being

Has dwindled away

 

Your vital force

Diminishes as

Grain by

Tiny grain

Your essence

Erodes . . .

 

Wake up

It’s half past

Your life!
