Primed With Possibility

Forget the Past but not enough
To neglect lessons learned from it
The Future, poised upon its cast
Is nothing yet, but dreamer’s ‘if’

Not what we’ve done with what we had
Not maybe-maybe-this-or-that
But what we do with what we have
This is where all of life is at

Not what we wish we would have done
Or what we say that we will do
Before and After hinge upon
The Now, that wafts twixt blue-to-blue

Ah, monumental moment-mien
That tugs the rising-setting sun
Where we are always in between
What we will do and what we've done

© Janet Martin

What will we do with the Now we hold?
Everything depends on this! 
...this 'primed-with-possibility-Present!

...and what is 'This'? 

This is the day the Lord has made;
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
