A Thousand Tiny Nows*

If a thousand tiny nows
rained down on me
I wouldn't know
what to do.
But one tiny now,
that I can do,
including this moment
when my cat Oscar
insists on communing
with the keyboard.
The next tiny now
holds the sound
of Canada geese.
Before long
a hundred tiny nows
create a day.


*Stolen from a greeting card - "Someday is a thousand tiny nows."

  1. I love this idea. I can do a tiny now better than a day or a week. We tend to want "bigger and better" but when it comes to the substance of life, the best stuff is in those tiny nows. Thanks!
