The present moment

Sometimes I wonder in thoughts
without noticing the world
around me

Or dreaming away about a future
that might come,
Or not.

And then there are times
when all around me
calls upon my awareness

The sun’s light
through frozen seaweed
awakens me to my life right now.
I hear a plane in the air
someone else’s trip somewhere

Feeling in the same time
the cold and crisp air
filling my lungs

Being perfectly aware of
that now,
I am being alive.
