This Is The Moment to Movie Night 
The spirit of motivation is in the air 
The spirit of motivation is in a friend's voice - but 


This Is The Moment (poem)

This is the time
This is the moment
The meaning of morning
The bright day ahead
-
Can’t you just feel it
Within all about you
Something is watching
Hoping to glimpse
Memory divine
=
Flowers all around
Hushing their scent
That winds may carry
Music of wonder
To kingdom of stars
-
Anticipating
Promises waiting
Hope’s dream creating
Values restating
Ever elating
-
Distractions set backs
May mask what is real
With veils of untrue
But they will not drown
Something so unique
-
This is your time
This is your moment
For you are morning
The bright day ahead 


Something in the wind attaches itself to us in this poem. This looks like a free form poem. It's true that only the fourth stanza rhymes. It does follow a very tight syllable structure. The first and last stanzas contain four lines. The rest of the stanzas contain five lines. The first and forth lines, of the four line stanzas, contain four syllables. The rest of the lines, in this poem, contains five syllables. 

If we have been following these blogs with some regularity, we will admit that I lived a pretty lucky life. It all started when I met Mr. Johnny Land, a music teacher who watched over me through my college years. Then I met my completion, Arlene. Together we became more. The days of our youth were spent in exploring, discovering and reveling in all that life had to offer. As parents we were very involved in our children's up bringing, schools and sports. (Perhaps a little too involved.) My job, at Chevron, was to think creatively. I joined the Masons, were my skills and talents made me a natural. It was the perfect arena to pay back for all of my blessings. The Masons are a charitable organization. In my Lodge came another person, we'll call him Bill, who also had a blessed life. He too had a strong need to give back for his blessed life. Bill was very successful with his charitable endeavor. In my Lodge were a lot of people who for one reason or another were held back. Bill and I were the motivation they needed. These people were the fuel that motivated others. Bill's and my drive were not unique. Others  also had a need to pay back through charities and service. The lights of motivation attracted each other and others. I lived a pretty lucky life.

What motivates us is a puzzling question. What motivates one person may not motivate another. To make matters even more complex, what motivates one thing or aspect of one person's life may not motivate another thing or aspect of that same person. To make matters more maddening, there is change. There is our fears, our beliefs, our shortcomings and there is the "can'ts" or the 'tomorrows". It seems that it takes motivation to get motivated. Remember, the wonder that is us. We have within ourselves the power and ability to accomplish almost anything. Plus there is help out there. Sometimes and somethings require small steps (at least at first). Know that we can do it. Motivation is contagious, Not only will your motivation fuel more in us, it will motivate others. And as the world of possibilities grows and opens to us, Enjoy,

  9. Love the poem. It gives you the motivation to enjoy the moment and the anticipation of your day, your life and how exciting it all is.
    Great that you were able to give back. I worked in charity and still volunteer and love it. Being able to motivate just one soul is so fulfilling.

  14. This is the moment or as I like to say "time is now" your poem is a reminder to enjoy the moments. I have days where I can feel the energy in the air, I pick up on vibrations and my own frequency is at a higher decibel. It's just something I can feel and in turn I try to ripple out that energy field for others to feel and experience as well.

    I hope you are well Martin!

    Bright Blessing

  15. you were truly blessed to choose the way of serving humanity ,the simple and pure way to please your Creator.

    i believe that everyone has unique magnetism for leaning and absorb according to it from surroundings and circumstances as biggest proof of my point is that children who grew together under the certain brought system vary in views and behaviors ,motivation belongs to insidious mechanism of learning
