How long is now?

When we are truly present
In the present moment
It seems this now
Will last forever
Memories and dreams
Are just that.
Past and future
Are not real
Like now.

The true Advent
Is learning to wait
In the sense of
Appreciating
The present
Moment.

When Christmas comes
Savour it.
Appreciate its ‘nowness’.
Don’t let it rush
Headlong by on the
Momentum of a
Senseless countdown.

How much of the Christmas wonder will you truly experience?
