Pause


we measure time
as it ticks away
counting down
what was

we measure time
as what lies ahead
wondering what shall be

but each moment
before another ticks away
there is a breathless stop
a pause 
this is now

  2. A wise piece of advice written in a creative way. I agree; what's important now is this pause.

  4. Oh yes, there's no time like the present. It's the only real place to be.
