Moments

November 6, 2007
By Laura Reichardt, Dillon, CO

The moments that matter the most—
(Pay attention,
Lest time forgets,
Lest they are lost).

The ones seen in matchless detail—
(The sun, just so,
The friends, here,
The memory: a grail).

Are moments that make a being—
(Not nature,
Not nurture,
Not suffering or bleeding).

Take this present: past, be engrossed.
(Only remembrance,
For the future is opaque,
Find the moments that matter the most).
