The Impossible Price


A collection, completion

Moment upon moment

Minutes that stretch 

into years


is impossible

intangible, elusive

And yet

we strive, for

something, someone


that will take us


Breath and beauty

shadow and pain

achingly combine

Knitted together 


What is a moment 


When I am overcome

with the wonder of it all

I wonder if there are 

resources enough in 

all of the


to cover the price of

reckless abandon

This post is inspired by the Five Minute Friday writing challenge. Each week I join with this talented group of writers, free writing for five minutes (or more in this case) in accordance with a prompt. Today’s prompt is ‘worth’.

  1. “What is a moment worth?” I’m trying to be more mindful, so I try to remember the value of each moment. However, I cannot answer this question!

    This was a thought-provoking piece.

    1. Neither can I! I love the idea of being more mindful, that is my set intention for today and I always find that I enjoy the day far more when I attempt to focus on that as my goal 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
