Thursday’s Burn, and the Coming Thirst

 i burn, i burn…not from the pain,

        and not from the fire which is surely to come,

    i burn with anticipation

the sun is high,

i slept late today,

must have been tired,

the hill came and went uneventful

and in the place of challenge of the hill

    there is a sence of anticipation

     the sun is bright and clear

so too are my thoughts

morning has come again

i am thankful

   i am given a new moment to say thus

i burn with the rage of a fire yet to be consumed

i burn for the unlived moments of a past not lived

i burn with excitement of what is yet to come

and yet here i am humbled to realize

i am not surprized at my excitement and despair

my thoughts while clear are sometimes jumbled

and i burn

i burn for i dont realize that while i burn the moment slips away

unseen,

unlived,

 unawares

here is the wisdom today offers

listen if your mind is ready to hear

ask a little sparrow what time it is..

ask a little sparrow what time is it..

he will pause but a moment for tobe sure a moment is all there is

thus he respond…”why now of course, how could it be otherwise?”

indeed, “how could it be otherwise”

when we think of yesterday and all that happened

as we contemplate , as we do,

all that did not happen, but was desired,

heed this this bit of wisdom…we all do that and this

now, and in this moment…

sadly most do not seize this moment

they do not see the life in front of their very eyes

when you think and dream of future things to come

when you dwell on things yet to come to pass,

you do this now

so here me child, listen to me

“NOW”

COME INTO AWARENESS NOW

BE HERE WITH ME AND LISTEN

YOU ARE ONLY GIVEN A MOMENT

TO LIVE

THAT MOMENT IS NOW

BREATHE AND FEEL THE LIFE AROUND YOU NOW

LISTEN WITH YOUR HEART NOW

FEEL WITH YOUR SENSES WHAT IS NOW

LIVE NOW
