Here and Now


a slow summer afternoon is in progress
the clouds break occasionally to allow the sun to peak down,
to heat the earth in her summers oven
the breeze softly blows in a cooling attempt
but the humid steam is too much
I sit on the porch with my iced coffee
dreams of my reading and knitting on my mind
instead I sit with closed eyes
drinking in this moment
of calm, of quiet
thankful for this time
this right now time
this time of life
with little ones so full of wonder and awe
reminding me to be present
for this time, this moment, this day
are fleeting
and we will never have this particular
here and now


  1. Thank goodness for our little ones, bringing us into the present to enjoy these moments with them :) Beautifully written.

  2. I like this reminder to savor the here and now

  3. So true and beautiful to read : )

  4. so true! I love "for this time, this moment, and this day are fleeting" I try every day to be present in the here and now.

  5. little ones will definitely keep you present!
