Fleeting Moments

Paulby Paul E Smith23 Nov 2013

This wondrous now
I want to hold
in my hand
and never let go,
too soon it's cold.

This moment in time
will never happen again
unfolding before astonished eyes
I struggle to take it in
before it passes.

A renewal of time
over and over
as the second hand
crosses the clock's face
and a new wondrous now
takes its place.
