minute strands of joy

I watch
 as life starts to leave
 me behind 

Each day
 unfolds its neverending
 glory, little by little
 youth is another creature
 ravenous its hunger
 consumes everything 

The minute joys
 encapsulated in each day
 should be savoured
 taken in small bites
 and rolled around your mouth 

Life is passing me by
 but I sit here holding
 ribbons of life
 stroking them through
 my hands
 each beautiful strand
 Is a moment of joy ....

    Jayne, i'm glad to know you find it a blessing in life's beautiful strand. It is a nice feeling, and image... I never have the time to stroke my hands through the strands of life.. I guess I am a sad case, and life is passing me by... I love this poem.. it meant a lot to me....always~ Linda

    really an excellent poem which is filled with positive energy.the glorious beginning that tells of the stand you take watching each moment of life,and the final stanza that adds extra charm to your writing,holding ribbons of life,stroking each beautiful strand.....a moment of joy....a beautiful imagery unfolds like a flower blooms
