Essence of Living

Savoring every piece every second
Moment to moment, iota to iota
Making every grain of time count
Stand for something truly precious

Basking in the warmth of near and dear
Treasuring and soaking in their love
Minding neither admonishments nor
Imparted advice, emanating out of care

Appreciating nature stretched out 
On a chaise long, reveling in reemergence
Of benign sun, illuminating and caressing
All that it touches, enthusing and energizing

Learning lessons from the industrious
Squirrel, lazing lizard, chirruping bird
Fluttering butterfly and pearly strings of
Raindrops, sparkling on overhead wires

Relishing every occasion, each holiday
With gusto and enthusiasm as the air
Crackles with excitement and electricity
And holiday cheer momentarily joins all

Keeping the right frame of mind always as
Life is a tight ropewalk after all and when
Hard times befall, overcoming and hanging on
Will be easier, knowing it has but a short life span

Living carefully as though tending water of life
Cupped in both palms of hands without spilling
Vigilant in body and mind to keep the soul both
Vibrant and lit up like a beacon of light within

Savoring every piece every second
Moment to moment, iota to iota
Making every grain of time count and
Stand for something truly precious
Living Life Tomorrow’s fate, though thou be wise, Thou canst not tell nor yet surmise;
Pass, therefore, not today in vain, For it will never come again.
Omar Khayyam Author Nationalities, Poet Quotes

To be alive, to be able to see, to walk, to have houses, music, paintings – it’s all a miracle.
 I have adopted the technique of living life miracle to miracle.
Arthur Rubinstein American, Musician Quotes

I like someone who embraces life; who wants to be on a long journey but has no particular plan
or destination in mind. An adventurous man, open to the concept of living life in the moment.
Jill Hennessy Canadian, Actress Quotes

The acceptance of death gives you more of a stake in life, in living life happily,
 as it should be lived. Living for the moment.
Sting British, Musician Quotes
