Momentous times

For my wife, Sue.

There are no bricks and mortar

to stand in place of a life lived

not for the moment

but in the moment

so that all times are momentous.

If your life is to simply stand still,

then be still.

If it is to be simple

then let it be simple.

Who is to know what great things

came from the simplest moments of stillness

in the hearts and minds

of the high and the low?

Give what troubles you a name,

rage against it,

bury it,

grieve for it,

and be released

for life.

And I will try

to be silent

to listen

to be here

to mind my own soul (and not yours)

to give what is mine to give

through life lived

in the moment

so that all times are momentous

especially with you.
