We seek for things that last
in this world that passes.
We stand on time
and time obliges to carry us in its currents.
We see a moment – a flower on the cusp of blooming,
a river flowing, clouds rolling – before we are moved along.
We see a glimpse
– never the whole-
but just a glimpse
a glance at perfection.
Sometimes we linger long enough
to grow roots –
and see love grow around us
and bear fruit. We marvel at the beauty
of lives getting more grand with time
– only to see our joys swept away
or ourselves be moved along.
Now we are here;
then we are gone.
We are tourists,
seeing only what time allows.
Then we go home,
and the world goes on
changing each moment.
Happy blessed Sunday to you all. 🙂
About the photo –
Two weeks ago, our family went for a walk by the Taunton River. While the children were splashing in the water, a kayak glided by, catching in its paddles the sun at 5:00 in an early fall afternoon. It was almost the golden hour for this photo. I am linking this photo with Dutch Goes the Photo’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Hour. I am very late for the party but inspiration and time had been hard to come by lately.
