That Exact Moment?
As I sit here looking out my window at the rain that is making tiny drops stay there for only a brief moment. I suddenly realize, that simple raindrop I will never see again. Oh yes there will be many raindrops on that window as there has been many times before but not that exact raindrops, for no two are alike and that moment is gone---forever.
Yes, we live in a very fast paced world today and everything is placed in front of us and we just take it for granted. Yet, if we just took a moment "for that is all you will have" and look at some of those beautiful things that we will never see in that exact way or form again.
Here are some of my attempts to paint a photo of a few moments that will never return again exactly like they did before:
A simple spider web that collected those precious drops of rain and then slowly for only a moment gently released it to the splash below---no, we will not see that exact moment again.
Of course we have all seen a beautiful rainbow. Yet, have we ever been to where it begins or ends? Nor, will we be able to reach out and touch it. Again we will never see those colors painted exactly like we seen them at that moment.
The magic of a new life is formed in a moment and our eyes will not be able to see its instant growth, for tomorrow it will have more new moments and we can not recapture them.
The raindrops are gone now and the sunsets are more beautiful today than they were yesterday for each is painted different and the footprints that we left in the sand are washed away in one brief moment.
Oh!, how many precise moments have we all just taken for granted that they would be there tomorrow. Yes, there will be many more moments to enjoy what is right there in front of us all, yet I wonder how many will see that moment for what it really is?
NOTE: I was inspired to write thishub with photos after admiring our fellow hubber friend Cris A, whom I call (talented young whipper-snapper). His talent with painting a picture worth a million words not written is extraordinary. Thanks sweetie, for you are also teaching me new ideas for I believe that when you stop learning-----you STOP.
