‘In a Moment’

Insecure pretty woman

(A poem written from a prompt as part of 2015’s April PAD Challenge from Writer’s Digest- which was to write a ‘Moment’ poem)

In a Moment

So many things can happen
In just one short moment
Undying love may be spoken,
Or a heart may be broken.
Calmness may be captured,
Or a temper is fractured.
A creative spark can be lit,
Or a life’s work left in bits.

In one moment life is granted,
In the other Death is planted.
One big bang birthed us all,
Another could be our downfall.
No moment must be taken lightly,
We must hold onto them tightly,
As if every little, tiny one
Might be our very last.
