The Present
by Rajender Krishan
Bookmark and Share
 

Before cognition happens
or expression takes place
Now − the moment
       slips away
another chapter gets added
to the epoch of life
 
Bound
in the limits of
Time, Space and Causation
The perception of the present
       the natural gift from God
remains perpetually camouflaged
within the diurnal shades
 
Transcend the limits;
eliminate the shadows
and experience
Now as Eternity...
 
So proclaim the Masters
 

When will I learn
to venerate the gift?

Comment This one is indeed wonderful! Loved these lines

"The perception of the present

within the diurnal shades"...Very true

Comment To live and enjoy within the narrow gap of Now is the essence of life. Your yearning is shared by most of us.

Comment Yes, 'When will I learn
to vernerate the gift?' is a million dollar question, Rajender ji! Profound thoughts.
