Now Just A Moment

I've been thinking a lot about living in the moment. I sometimes fear that I live too much in the future and the past and use now as a watchtower. There is only now. This may be the deeper meaning of" im lo achshav eimatai? - if not now when?" More than the usual - valid - mussar take on this phrase, that if you put something off it may never happen, there's more here. If you don't live in the present tense then when are you living? Are you truly living if you spend your now dwelling on the past and preempting the future.

A moment is
a firecracker
a kiss
a thought
a note
a breath
this poem
here and gone
like our loved ones
