Thursday Thoughts (and Shots) on Moments

These are no mere moments
That waft silk-soft adrift
These nuggets sifting through God’s hands
Shape Time; an awesome gift

These are no mere moments
Slip-slipping one by one
No, these are stepping stones that lead
To God when life is done

These are no mere moments
…small smatterings of air
No, these are living testaments
Of God’s kind love and care

These are no mere moments
Binding the years that haste
No, these are tick-tock treasures
Testing thought, touch and taste

These are no mere moments
Of bloom and butterfly
This is the day the Lord has made
Granted to you and I

So how were your moments today?
Mine included much laundry...again!!
a bit of canning...

 a bit of fall decorating...

...what's left on the to-do list?
Supper then dishes, wash van and mop floors!
Maybe I'll wash the sidewalk too;-)


  1. I was chatting about your beautiful poetry blog to a fellow InScriber this afternoon. She's also a poet and wondered about blogging. I mentioned how your share your poetry on your blog. I'm going to pass along your link to her ... her name is Sylvia.

    I had some lovely moments catching up with dear fellow writers today. And I just finished working on a new blog post, and now I think I'll spend a few moments getting my beauty sleep.. It's already going on to 2:00 am here.

    Wishing you a beautiful day when you wake. May your moments be graced with joy!

    1. Hi Brenda, and thank-you so much! it is really hard to know where to share poetry. i like a blog because readers come of their own free will and also, I'm just not really sure what else to do with poetry other than fill books and books because sometimes words seem to need to get out!

      Enjoy your sleep. I simply can't do those two-in-the-morning-ers anymore! I love writing in the middle of the night but then I'm a zombie the next day ;-()

      I think I remember the name Sylvia. I hope to 'meet' her soon.

      Thank-you again for your encouragement!


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
