Embracing Life

Living for Today

by Poetic Friend

Yesterday has perished,
never to reign again,
and tomorrow's dawn
may not unfold for me,

but I still have today
to play with the clock’s  hands.
Not a second I shall waste.
My future lies uncertain.

Nature beckons me
to attend her gala
and embrace this planet
as I never have before--

to waltz with winds,
travel skies on clouds,
sail freely mid waves,
or join the robins' choir.

I can soar among stars,
dine beneath moonlight,
or listen to sweet silence
as twilight rules the air.

Today's mine to treasure
and leave behind
living in yesterday
or waiting for tomorrow.
