Now to Forever

What is the distance between now and forever?
Is it measured in light years?
Generations?

Or maybe the moments between burnt toast for breakfast
and the birth of a generous deed

Moments between what is damaged by rage
and that which is healed with compassion

Let’s be diligent choosing a focus, dear friends,
for it’s now that builds forever…

forever

  1. “Or maybe the moments between burnt toast for breakfast
    and the birth of a generous deed” — given the current spirit of generosity in the country, I’d say there’s large swaths of time indeed between acts.

    Love this piece. Very forward thinking and positive. Thank you for sharing, you earned a follow.

    1. Thank you for the follow! Yes, the current energy in the US is so divisive now that I did want to write something positive. I’m hoping the positive energy will prevail. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.

  2. another great poem LuAnne. Love this line ” Or maybe the moments between burnt toast for breakfast
    and the birth of a generous deed” – makes me determine to be more generous all round.

    1. So glad this resonated with you, Harula. This was inspired by a conversation with my daughter as she moved cross country and was starting her first career job. Thanks so much for stopping by.
