A MOMENT FOR SIMPLE JOY

A little pool of cool water,
An invitation for some idle doves,
To cool themselves on a hot sunny afternoon;
Fluttering their wings in joyous dance,
Dipping their breasts in cool delight,
Splashing and preening their feathers!
The simple joy they display,
Lifts up my wearied soul,
Telling me to lay aside my worry,
Relax and enjoy the present moment!
Moment once passed there is nothing to behold,
Worrying over coming events I cannot control;
Fret not, worry not what tomorrow brings;
Live the present moment!
