“The hardest part is when the river
is too swift and goes underground for days on end”  

~Jim Harrison from Songs of Unreason

Life flows in moments

-rising at dawn, ebbing at sunset

There are those in our dreams

-forming snapshots made perfect

We live for meaningful moments

that fall like rain

We want to know what is purpose

-is it balanced pleasure or learned pain?

We herd them together

wanting to relive good old moments again

Purpose hides itself in the sediment

as rivers of moments slip ever so swiftly

into the past

You can’t keep a moment, so learn your purpose fast

Good ,bad, joyful or swollen with despair

-each moment-there to comfort and teach

but never to last
