Wasted time
reaching the destination, that final
landing would mark the what?

The new?

This road has been
our beginning.
The journey
is now.
Every instant of us is
the real.

What we are,
Iíve spent a lifetime

Words written were
only a prelude
to this.

Iíll bask in
each tangible moment.
Live every present stretch.

Yesterday is a bye gone.
Tomorrows will wait.
Today is.

I am on a journey. Looking for Me. Everyday I get a little closer. The more time goes by the more I realize I'm always changing. This journey could take forever... Renae L. Soler

All is in the now...and the now is all there is. Cool. Live in each moment or you might miss something is what I always say. Thanks for sharing this wise gem of a poem. And again, thanks for stopping by on my ~EXORCISM~ haiku to comment, quite a treat hearing from you. Come back more often.

I like

the idea of basking in the tangible moment, stretching it out like elastic... as opposed to wallowing in the intangible, which is something poets are prone to, I guess, I know I am....

I like the emphatic emphasis of "Today is"... so little just "is", it's nice to be reminded...

good to read your work again. take care.

Hi Nae, welcome back

Waisted...I am not wasted...
Laughing... ok I am truly not wasted...nor was the word waist. I am simply in too deep? Possible?

Thank you so much for your responses. It has been a long time and I have missed this place. I was on here for a few days reading your words and it made that urge resurface. Love you guys!
