Day 189: That Moment

That Moment

I want to be that moment

in a black and white film

when man pulls woman into his arms


I want to be that passion

the lyrics in the love song

that leave you gasping


I want to be that instant

when mother sees newborn

and souls embrace


I want to be that sigh

as lost wanderer tracks

the sun dripping below ocean


I want to be that completion

the final missing piece

of the perfect puzzle


I want to be that reason

you sprint back home

to find what was forgotten


I want to be that breaking

the mile-marker when runner weeps

and then pushes onward, strengthened


I want to be that second

when one first beholds his beloved

and understands she is his answer


I want to be that ache

the final line of a love poem

  1. YOU ARE ALL THOSE THINGS! But I love this piece …. wow — 2 amazing posts in 1 day… my heart will skip too many beats soon šŸ™‚ This is so wonderful… I can relate — I want to be all those things too — especially to those I love the most. You did a fabulous job of expressing such an innate longing inherent in all of us (whether we admit it or not)! I love all the imagery and all the emotion this evokes (for me)… I know there will be lots of readers chiming in who concur – it pulls at the heartstrings … but we must remember WE ARE!! xxoo Tons of Love — and not really angst here to me — just the state of being real -being human – being honest — longing — desiring — loving and feeling. It is all good Sam — You are the best! ~R

    1. I’ll answer more later…but thank you so much for your support…it’s angst to me…a different type I suppose. but your words and direct visit over here mean so much. All write more back to you tomorrow. šŸ™‚ Hugs

    2. I’m back. I couldn’t answer last night…this was still to raw in my heart. šŸ™‚ I never thought to think people would comment that I am those things…but some did…and I’m not sure how that makes me feel, as I wasn’t looking for compliments, and hope I didn’t come across that way. But I do appreciate that people think I am some of that….sigh….still angsty about this though. I have so much passion in me, I have never ever felt before. I have to tell you how much your friendship means to me, To have such a dear kind friend in the blogging world is such a pleasure (and real world some day). Thank you. “We must remember who we are!” Yes…that is what I need to embrace. I tend to give my power to one… and not the God/Universe….so good reminder. You are a sweetie. and lovedddddddd that 80’s hair. I graduated in the 80’s too…only I didn’t realize puffy hair went out of style and had it for years….lol…Hugs Pretty, Pretty, sea sister. šŸ™‚

      1. So this was raw … and major angst for you šŸ˜¦ I guess would be for me too if I allowed myself to ‘go there’ but I think I put up a lot of emotional boundaries for myself because I can’t ensure anymore agony than I’m already in. It’s a long discussion… maybe we can have one day. I guess I loved this piece so much because you went there for me …. so thank you. It also made me instantly acknowledge that you are all those things… and so am I… we all are. You provide cathartic release by sharing so much of you that is reflected in all of us …but that we often won’t go near for the fright and fear it evokes. You are brave Sam!! Yes – me too on the 80s hair – as I had perfect hair for that “wings” thing – so didn’t want to give it up… šŸ™‚ Love and Friendship to you dearest one… Robyn

  2. Wow once again the words of wisdom, of true feeling, that somehow managers to stir feelings and thoughts in my mind.. what is it that I’m missing that I cannot express myself in they same manner that you do… is it because I’m an older man, from a different generation… or is it a God given gift that you have been given?… yes I think that is the answer, its a gift that you have received, that ability to write with meaning and feeling that is so important for everyone to be able to do..
    You are an inspiration to many I’m sure.. well you are to me.. Hugs…

    1. You are missing not a thing……You are perfect in God’s image and your photography captures the soul of heaven’s beauty. šŸ™‚ I just happen to have so much angst and emotion in me that it leaks out non-stop…not something I would wish upon anyone. But a part of me I nonetheless embrace and accept….and try to turn into light. Your words are embraced and appreciated. Your kindness highly valued. Your friend, Sam šŸ™‚

  3. Another very beautiful poem. Beautiful images. Don’t know you dovit every day– come up with something do good!! Of course, I still say to publish. I’d buy a book of your poetry and buy my psychiatrist a book by you on Aspie traits! Getting him to read it would be the problem.

    1. Too sweet are you. Someday perhaps….I can visualize a little poetry book. Perhaps. You made me laugh aloud about your psychiatrist reading….lol…that’s just too great. Hugs, Sam šŸ™‚

  4. Ahhh, but you are Sam! You are every moment and so many more. Love, love, love the gift that is YOU! Xxxx

  5. yessss…you are that “moment” Sammi šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ hugs…and luvs, my friend šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚ thanks for sharing all you wonderful thoughts…very inspirational…

  6. Wow…another spirit inspired poem my lovely friend. Such depth of love you express in this. Awesome is the only word I’m finding. Oh yes, and bloody amazing fits too.. hehe.
    I’m wondering if this moment, that moment, your inner angst expressed can only come from an inner awakening, a connection. You know, those little glimpses of heaven on earth that we all long so desperately for. Perfect poem my lovely Basna.
    Love you so very much. xxx šŸ™‚ ā¤
    Love this photo of two trees crossing paths, over a path….just wonderful.
    Listening to your choice of songs now. šŸ™‚

    1. hehehehe Bloody amazing…I can hear your accent…hehehe
      Yes……this really felt like an awakening. It does feel like heaven…very unfamiliar…..but you are correct…as always. šŸ™‚ and helpful in your reasoning/knowing.
      That’s a path I will take you on someday….first objective when I have extra bundles of cash is to fly you out here….your whole family…..wishing on money now…God provides
      Much love to you,

  7. You look summer-y and relaxed. Sweet poem. Sorry I’ve been gone a few. Mom was in the hospital but will be going home today. Will catch up! Just happy to come back to reading the beautiful posts you gift to us here. xoxo

    1. K ~ I have been walking up a storm! 5 miles on Monday. Finally took a break yesterday. But worked in the garden for two hours. I have more energy in the summer. šŸ™‚ I am so sorry to hear about your mom, and am sure glad she is coming home. HUGS go out to you. Thank you for saying your kind words. Hugs to you, Sam šŸ™‚

  8. You know, emotion is wonderful, but to always be such a deep, powerful emotion…I am not sure that would be good for you or your soul. It is the trip to the valley or up the mountain that is the thing, not so much the actual reaching of either.

    1. For certain….just for a moment in someone’s eyes….a calling out to someone to see beauty…that is what this piece is about for me…not an everlasting or constant state. šŸ™‚ Great thoughts blog brother. Calling to a loved one this piece was for me. Thanks for your support. šŸ™‚
