Not Remembering, Not Forgetting (Poem)

Not Remembering, Not forgetting
By. H.A. Handy
Copyright (c) 2006 by H.A. Handy

Sit quiet
Bird song trilling
Echoing that longing,
That longing of some deepest memory
Where something is almost remembered.

A pleasant something,
Flowing and coursing
With unending depths
Some song of long ago
Something perfect...

Lost within the eternal memory
Locked away almost accidentally
By hands or thoughts once thought or did,
That closed the memory,

Just behind the consciousness
Almost seen, glimpsed, touched
A thousand times a thousand times
But never fully grasping hold of it
We've almost brought it forth, time after time...

And we feel it -
That moment of remembering and moment
Now and Then
Existing simultaneously
Within the depths of our very Souls!

And we smile.
We lift our heads to the sun
Not remembering,
Not forgetting,
Enjoying the moment of Current Time.
