I am having the most fun imaginable …
stealing Tidbits from my Future.
I am sneaking past the impediments of Now …
and sampling more.
More than what the Present would offer …
tiny portions of Then.
Awakened to the Truths of Time and Space …
I play with both.
I have witnessed the regrets of those
who have reached Dinner’s end.
Their eyes sad when the Meal’s
dessert Course is served.
Their longing for time to enjoy another serving
of an Appetizer …
Clouding their ability to celebrate the majesty
of Life’s Finishing Dish.
In response to Observation’s lessons,
I have learned to nibble ahead.
A small sip, of what we all know as,
our mortal Futures …
I savour Bliss, as a tease, with promise
of much more to come.
Visiting Time’s kitchen … I inhale
Eternity’s simmering fragrance.
Thus, I know neither fear nor trepidation
in awareness of Life’s Repast.
For I have learned the beauty of taking
some of Dessert’s sweetness …
Midst bites of my Main Course’s robust flavours.
Each Element of Life’s buffet … I allow to reside
in Memory, Anticipation, and Moment.
So, Dear, Fellow Diner, speak not to me
of dread, of Tomorrow.
Nor tell me of longing, for Yesterday.
For you are speaking to One who is
examining, tasting, and visiting …
All of My Banquet of Life … Past known …
and Future, gleefully sampled.
“Trust your Creator …
lean not, on your own Understandings.
In all of your Ways (Past, Present, and Future),
acknowledge the Truth that is in
All being by design …
and your path will be lovingly guided.”
The Book of Proverbs, Chapter 3, Verses 5 and 6
