Free verse poem speaking on living in the moment

Only This

by Mike J

Only this actual moment
is warm air on the hairs
of our neck, swaying
each like grass in a
summer breeze.

Only this actual moment
tugs at skin like a hungry
child, craving nothing more
than acknowledgement.

The chance to walk hand
and hand with our thoughts,
follow the map of the
heartbeat.

What else deserves to
swallow us whole?

Other than what wakes
the senses. Gives life.
Is life. This actual
moment.
