NaPoWriMo: Every Moment

Here's my try at day 14. I give much credit to those in this challenge that have been able to keep up. I am trying to use the prompts when I can but lately I've just been writing what comes to me.  I'm looking forward to reading what others have come up with today. If you are participating in the challenge feel free to leave the link to today's poem in the comments section.

                                                                          favorite trees outside of my childhood home.)

Every Moment

Every moment of every day
Eternity breathes out
Reality at play.

Shifting illusions fill the senses
Egos hard at work
building high fences.

We look at each other and seem world's apart
If only we'd light compassion's fire
Realizing we all have the same heart.

To look within another soul as if through a mirror
Self reflecting self births a revelation
That could not be any clearer.

I'd love your thoughts! Thank you!


  1. "Eternity breathes out"
    "Egos hard at work
    building high fences"

  2. "Self reflecting self births a revelation . . ." Wow! What a great line, so simple yet profound in meaning. Yes, if only we could see we all belong to one heart.
