The Moment

The moon dance
the river lance
my soul dives
the turning moon cries

The sun sighs
tomorrow hides
But now
there is no foul

This second descends
the moment defends
No time can taint
This day I paint

---a picture
of my adventure
an instant
not distant

The mountain high
the bird cry
The thunder cloud
the booming sound pounds loud

My ears
my fears
all emotion
such commotion

a moment kept
time turns

Yes the moment
a torment
a mighty ship
a journey leapt

It all makes sense
I'm not dense
Everything rings
And truth sings

Give and take
This life you make
Good and bad
Take and be glad
