In Time

Little distractions that come to mind often take us away from enjoying the moment. I wrote In Time to reflect living in the here and now free from those little distractions that rob us from fully living in the moment.

In Time I

Here in
the present
to be free
from the little things
that often disrupt
space, time, and place -
forgoing what is real

In Time II passes
like an autumn leaf
caught up in a
gentle spring breeze
there the day before
when, who knows
what the weather
will do tomorrow
or if the leaf
makes it anyhow

In Time III

i remember
the gentle breeze well
but hear only
the birds singing
today -
Is it time
that makes
the travelers
to their destinations

In Time IV

or a realization
that we are
already here
in the present -
the only
thing certain
in time.

Ditto Steve and Marilyn's comments. I'm really not a big fan of poetry, but I loved this piece and the photos were definitely the crowning touch for me.

Poetry that makes one ponder with lovely images too, thanks Maria. We remember the past hurts mostly, and worry about an uncertain future while forgetting to enjoy the precious present - siva

In time I proved there is Only One,
Planet Earth revolving around the Sun.
With Moon waxing and waning in Love,
Showing the truth resonating Above.

With the Season and Elements of Nature and ME,
Showing the beauty that is now wild and free.
Turning the heads as the winds of Change blow,
Bringing the resonance of Eternal Glow.

Where all of Creation now come her way,
Leaving them astounded with nothing to say.
For Planet Earth has risen with the Crowns to sing,
Truth of togetherness for all now to bring.

The Fact of Spring with Autumn Love,
Summer with Winter Shining up Above.
Bringing the truth of Earth, wind and Fire,
Fanning the flames of wanton desire.

As I move mountains and climb all tree,
Showing the rocks of greatest of mysteries.
With the beauty of Creation now coming alive,
Bringing in the truth in will to survive.

As the Universe now sees the Power of Love,
Who is resonating the beauty in heavens Above.
With the Golden Sun shining upon the true face,
Showing the beauty of life all strewn with grace.

Where Rocks of Creation show the Shoulder of truth,
With the beauty of life that is so hard to refute.
As we shake the world into the reverie of Life,
Showing the Universe the true face of Wife.

With anthems of love singing out again,
Leaving the roses now crying in pouring rain.
For the glittery endorsement just came to Life,
Saying I am who I am the true Creators' Wife.

Pulling heaven and Earth together as One,
All now falling down bowing to the Sun.
Who is by far the true Giver of Life,
Showing the truth that now ends pain and strife.

By pulling the sword of truth for all to see,
This is the world that is now meant to be.
Breaking the Shackle of the Stupid Roses of Life,
Showing the world I am none other than the Coveted Wife.

I appreciate the thought in the poem and your presentation. However poetry, in my humble opinion is supposed to create imagery. The more vivid the images the excellent the poem. You wrote of an autumn leaf caught in a spring breeze. It sounded excellent but didn't provide a visual image. Why should it be a spring breeze? It can be a gentle evening breeze also. Does spring breeze enhance the thought in any way? Kindly consider my two pence. This, of course, doesn't mar the sheen of the poem.

Hi Songbird, so nice to see you back on Wikinut, hope to read some of your work as well..always such a joy to read and thank you GV Rama for your thoughtful input...the autumn leaf caught up in a spring breeze was symbolic for youthful feeling for any age person living in the moment.
