Being present

The frost accentuates 
Each vein that once gave life and structure 
To this dead leaf, whose ghostly appearance 
Calls to me as I cross the lawn 
In hopes of photographing the sunrise. 
How easy it is to miss the gifts of the present 
While focusing on the future; 
How easy it is, to miss the potential gifts, 
The broadening of perspective we might gain, 
By planning how we might respond 
Instead of being fully present 
And listening to what others have to say…
