Fay Slimm






How inspiring it is to be

right in the moment.

To know there is something

beyond the knowing.

To feel the theatre of life's

momentous journey.

To stand still in the middle

of heaven's slow turning.

            Yes indeed, to experience a truth beyond all we are taught or hope for brings such a knowing.
            It resides within and is a strength felt every day.
            Yes, we each are a part of it all.

            • Fay Slimm

              Oh how true that we are a part of the Complete and can experience a little of what is to come by staying in the moment as long as we can - - thank you indeed for this enlightening comment dear poet-friend.

            • Accidental Poet

              With so many moments to look forward to and look back on, we tend to forget to "live in the moment" for the greatness that it is. Excellent write Fay.

            • FredPeyer

              Beautifully expressed, Fay! Every once in a long time there are these special moments where you 'just know', where you 'are there'. Moments that are very special, nearly like an epiphany.

            • Goldfinch60

              Those moments are so special. Good write Fay.
