Poem, Spiritual

Drinking in my days

Drinking in my days
Capturing each moment
Don’t let them slip away
Noticing them sway
One into another
Some light as a feather
Some heavy as stone
In every single one
A lesson to be learnt
All beautiful in its own way
Living in today

This poem accompanies my last post, “Now is all you’ve got”.

Any thoughts? What did you get out of it? How did it make you feel?

  1. Wow! Very nice imagery Staci. Was looking at the picture too and not sure what red fluid is in the glass. Guessing tomato or clamato and probably wrrong on both counts. Thanks for sharing some of your life in poetry.

    1. Hey there Terry. To tell you the truth I don’t really know what’s in the glass either. But I really liked the photo and thought it depicted what I wanted to share.
      Thank you so much for your comments and many blessings to you =)

  2. Lovely poem chica! I love the first line, “Drinking in my days.” It reminds me that life is meant to be lived and savored. Take in each moment, no matter what it brings, and take it in – savor it. Now if I could only do that – hehe! 🙂

    1. Hey, I love that -“life is meant to be lived and savored”. That’s a great line. It’s like when you drink a tall glass of cold water when you’re hot and thirsty. So refreshing.
      Thanks Celeste.

  3. Beautiful. Drinking in the days to me means pensive sips, savoring each one, like fleeting moments in time. Like closing your eyes and inhaling the aroma of a rose – you’ll remember it forever.

    1. Well said Rob. Thank you for sharing. I like the idea that ‘drinking something in’ gives. I decided to look it up in the dictionary and this is what I found:
      “to watch or listen to something with eager pleasure or interest”.
      So then, “to watch/observe/face our days with great interest”
      –love it.
      Blessings =)

  4. This is a beautiful piece of work, Staci.

    I’ve just come from reading one of my friends blogs where he discusses the pain and consequence of alcoholism and so I was initially seeing it from a completely different perspective.

    When i switched it up and began to relate to it from the perspective of someone savoring and fully experiencing their days, it transformed for me.

    Great flow, up-beat, encouraging and a reminder

    TY for sharing


    1. Thank you so much Miss Lou for your kind words and encouragement. I really appreciate it. I’m glad that you enjoyed it.
      Interesting how you mentioned that you first read it after reading about the pain and consequences of alocoholism. I can see how that could influence the perspective. I’m glad though that you were able to see the whole “drinking” idea as a savoring and experiencing of days.

      1. Yes, as I read through I grasped the context and it did place things into the perspective you intended 🙂


  5. my darling daughter; your poetry is constantly improving! Well said and well done! I am so proud of you.

    1. Ohhhh, my Moomy Pie. You commented on one of my posts. Thank you so much. It seems like Daniel was right. You just have to start. You may not have it all perfect at first, but the trick is to just start. When we were at YWAM’s conference in Caldas Novas, the founder of YWAM was sharing one night and he said, “We YWAMers like to learn to fly while we’re already in the air.” We don’t wait until we have all the theory and perfection under our belts. We just have a vision and go with it and learn as we go. And I think that the way I learn best too.
      Thanks again Moomie Pie and love ya tons.
