Live to the fullest

“One clear moment, one of trance 
One missed step, one perfect dance 
One missed shot, one and only chance 
Life is all…but one fleeting glance.” 
― Sanober Khan

Oh there it goes

fleetingly,

swimmingly,

gently,

just another moment

traveling on that speck dust

on that sliver of light

which you hardly noticed

with our heads down and deep

in the lap of your worries

ears buzzed and hummed

by the lullaby of the life

zapped by the lights

on the horizon

which you are blinded by

since the day,

you got here

it comes and goes

and without you knowing

the life passes by you

with a fleeting

gentle touch

And all that matters in the end

is the regret

shaped and rounded

as globule of the salty water

that everything happened

and you forgot to enjoy the view.

  1. Heads down in the lap of your worries… wow… Megha, my dear friend, this is exceptional poetry. The image of fleeting moments traveling on specks of dust… kudos to you for writing some of the most vivid and beautiful images. We really do need to focus on the view in life for if we continue to walk around with our heads bowed in shame or regret we will miss life itself.

      1. You are welcome. Yes, and it tip toes quickly. Let’s never find ourselves at the end of life wishing we had done so many things differently.
