Golden Moments


How many golden moments are we allowed in a lifetime?
How often are we gifted with a moment that we are too busy to savor?
How many moments do we touch in swift passage
leaving us just with the sweetness on our fingertips?
How many leave us with only the flicker of happiness in a human eye?
How many leave us with only the faintest lyrical laugh on the air or warm sigh on the breeze?
How many golden moments are we able to hold close in memory?

We need to savor these moments as they come or we will miss out - Dave

I am glad I am often aware of when those moments occur and can enjoy them.

Very nice. I know you have had a lot of angst over this one.

By the way, I tried to click on Dave's link and it came up with a warning from Google. There's script on your site from Blogorama, Dave, if you are reading this!

That photo should be a book cover. My savoring of moments is fleeting and often I try to record them via my blog but more often I am left to move forward from them hoping the memory will recur from time to time.

I saw that and wondered if it was a picture or a dream. Lovely.

You have caused me to ponder my list for the day. I think I'll just go to the hammock and read.

Good questions that we all need to think about. Sometimes we don't recognize golden moments. Sometimes we have too high a standard for our golden moments so enjoy each day as if it's a golden moment.

A nice type of golden picture, I love it.

I think about this often. I so want to capture beautiful moment while they are happening. I don't want to miss them. So precious.
Beautiful post!

Too few, alas - until untimely reality gives us a nudge - and a fresh take on life. Then not only do we suddenly discover that there are more of these moments than we had ever realised, but we sip them slowly as we should.
