Beckoning Onward

This day is my life,
just this one, this moment,
everything else a story
I tell myself or listen to
while real life passes
on the flowing tide,
heading south
toward the moon
silent and unseen,
beckoning the sea
and my quiet soul

    ” .. everything else a story”. How this quiets the mind, and releases the heart to soul communion. Thank you for your gems Don!

    Always a story always a reason, missing the mark – how beautiful to touch it to be it – thank you brother for the presence in this one

    Brilliant…and everything else IS a story…a happy story, a sad story, but a story nonetheless!

    Beautiful, Don. Indeed, this moment is and always will be my life……everything else is, as you say, “a story I tell myself or listen to.”
    Thanks for sharing true-self through your poetry.

    Beautiful poem, Don! This is the ultimate awareness in my opinion, when you realize, this is my life and I paint the canvas. Thank you, as always my friend!

  12. For years, when people asked about my earlier life, I told them it’s not my story anymore. Still do. Now I know that this day is my story, tomorrow another, unencumbered by the past. Hmmm…now what kind of author am I today?

  13. lovely and true , Thanks Don
