How long does the ‘now’ really last?

(where Dr. Seuss meets Eckhart Tolle)

 

How long does the ‘now’ really last?

One breath? Two? Maybe three?

Does the ‘now’ feel any different

Than the moments that are yet to be?

How long can you truly stay in the now?

And when does ‘now’ become ‘then’?

As sure as I type these letters

Their ‘now’ has already been

So as you read what I’ve written

Are you living in the past?

Enjoying these words I’ve created

words that are meant to last?

“Now” is what you feel when you are enjoying these moments.
