THE GREETING PLACE – REPRISE

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

There is no demarcation zone,
no welcome platform
where we can greet
with fanfare
the arrival
of the newest
and next
moment in time,
Now  

Now
just sneaks up on us
with a peek-a-boo greeting
that somehow
always leaves us surprised
and excited
with the gifts of opportunities
and possibilities it brings 

It’s the anticipation
that makes it fun
and brings a smile to our face
It helps replace
some of the somber
and sad memories
of yesterday
that might
still linger 

But, Perhaps
I am wrong?

Maybe
our greeting place
for all the wonderful
new Nows ahead
is in the fading darkness
of the night,
as dawn approaches
with a glow of light
across the horizon
as we sit
and wait
with glee,
watching the arrival
of a new day,
at sunrise
with all its – new Nows!  

Look,
here they come!
