What is the Present? (for Candle light)

The past may entail the future,

While the future may relive the past.

The past is a closed convention,

While future is an open ended question.

 

The past had already gone,

While the future is yet to come.

The past is a memory,

While the future is a new story.

 

So what is the present?

 

The present connects the past and the future.

The present is a given chance

To look back on a closed convention,

And to prepare for an open ended question.

 

The present is the very moment we are in.

The present is the gift of time

To reminisce a memory

And to start writing a new story.

I like this--it's hard, but to live in the present moment, you're right, is a gift. Lots of thought you put into this!

WISH I COULD DREAM FOREVER


Selene, enchantress of the night,
Chain me with light
To this wonder –
My dream’s zephyr.

Let me drift to a paradise
Where no one lies,
And no disdain
Runs through my veins.

Whisper me Endymion’s curse –
Zeus’ spell verse,
So dire sunbeams
Won’t fail my dreams.
