And Now

Tomorrow is approaching — or is it?

It’s always now, isn’t it?

We plan for tomorrow — or fail to —

and we comb over yesterday

with fondness or regret, but meanwhile

Now is in progress, 

Now is happening,

Now is all we have.

It behooves us to pay attention now, 

to look around now,

and see what there is to be seen,

to find what needs to be done and do it,
