Child of the Moment

I am a child of the moment;
yesterday and tomorrow do not exist.
Do not stay up all night talking
about the sun, then sleep
through the day.

Do not ask for more,
for the vessel can hold
only so much. The seed must
be in the ground to become
what it was meant to be.
Give it water from your vessel
and time for it to sprout.

Be sure that your love is
true. Any love based on physical
beauty is not love. Choose to
love the One who does not die
and your love will be forever.

      I agree, the picture is so special. I have another that I will post in the next couple of days that is just as beautiful. Check back and see it. While I do post many of my own photos, I also use the wealth of photography on the Internet. It is truly a beautiful world and the photos really have helped me appreciate it even more. hugs, pat

    Thank you, Michael. I, too, learn from them…a lot! I go back and reread them and find new layers of meaning to them. I feel in awe of what is happening here. hugs, pat
