'Moment'ous



What moment would I write about?

The moment I told my first serious lie or the moment of shame when i got found out?

The moment of winning my first prize or the moment of losing a friend?

The moment of an insult or the moment of a hug?


What moment should I talk about?

The moment when I was a child or the one when I was that no more?

The moment I stepped into a new life or the moment I waved goodbye to the old?

The moment I gave life or that moment when I lost one?


Or the moment I wiped a tear or that when i received a smile?

Or?

Those moments of happiness or those countless ones of lost temper,

Moments of abandon or moments of self-control,

Moments spent dreaming or moments spent coming back to the real!!



So, tell me what moment should I talk about?

Every moment has its significance - a moment of sadness, a moment of glory, a moment of love or a moment of weakness. They are all frozen... many in pictures, words, actions and mind. But will I ever be able to recapture the feeling of the moment just gone? can I?

Rambler said...

I liked the pic you have put up..a lot.
I think the beauty is that you have so much to talk about, so why not, why chose when you have so many :)

Ps said...

You just managed to capture them all and so beautifull too--and the underlying thought is very similar to what i wrote!
BTW I did not understand that statement about a moment when you lost a life.(I could only think about motherhood--moment when you gave a life--but how does that justify losing?What did you mean?)

@ prats, rambler, ps

thank you, I had trouble zeroing on one MOMent because every moment is meaningful in some way...

preeti...a miscarriage...a foetus in medical terms but real to me nevertheless

I like the way you ask the questions within the poem... I've seen people do this once or twice recently and I think it's a good medium.

Preethi said...

Yes whats life if not full of precious moments.. moments we will treasure and remember for a life time... very lovely summing up.. loved it as always!!

tumblewords said...

Nicely stated. All our moments have made us who we are and yet very few of them can be re-emotioned or re-felt - indeed, each was special in its own way.

Mary Timme said...

Nope! So live it while there and let it go! Good thought process!
