    What is a moment?
    It’s a flash before your eyes.
    A moment comes and goes
    before you realize;
    A moment is what drives you
    with every breath you take
    and can be your crowning glory
    or can be your worst mistake.

    A moment is that instant
    when you turn left or right,
    and if you make the wrong turn
    you may never see the light...
    or a moment is that flash
    which tells you to stop or start,
    where you make a special friendship
    or you have one torn apart.

    And so a moment is important
    for every step that you put forward,
    there’s a million moments every day
    to offer shame or a reward,
    and you should treasure every moment
    that goes dashing through your mind,
    for a moment’s not immortal,
    it is swift but well defined.

    So what is a moment?
    It’s your birth, your death, your soul,
    the very thing that drives you,
    which sometimes you can’t control;
    but moments are so precious,
    they are seeds that you have sown...
    from your birth until your death,
    each moment is your very own.

    Good evening mountainpepper - This is a lovely poem. The iambic pentameter is so precise that the poem reads so easily and naturally. The rhyme is unforced and natural as well. And yet, you manage to say something so enphatically beautiful: value your moments, treasure them as if they are pieces of your soul.

    Really beautifully scribed.
    Thanks for the share.

    J.

    Thank you MsJacquiiC for your encouraging comment. I do appreciate what you wrote, and yes, each moment might appear insignificant but they are they the links in our chain of life.

    Ha! I like to think of our moments as pages in our poetry manifesto, simply needing a bit of freedom (and opportunity) to make the manifesto publishable and interestingly readable to others.:readnews:
