This Precious Moment



This Precious Moment

By Vicki L. Flaherty

Here we are.

You and me.

Together in this living, breathing moment.

I see into your eyes.

A deep well invites me in.

I hear your words.

They envelop and pull me in.

I move inside the waves like a song.

I feel your presence,

A palpable energy.

I stand in the shower of your light.

Illuminated, you leave me curious.

What awakens your spirit?

What makes your heart sing?

What do you love more than anything?

What are you passionate about?

What is your special gift?

How do you feel most alive?

Beyond the words and actions,

Amidst our dance,

what connection is possible for us?

What does this precious moment together offer us?

About Vicki Flaherty

I feel most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing and poetry, gardening and photography, or simply living my life each day. Running and yoga enrich my being. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. I share my gratitude for all the gifts in my life on my This Abundantly Delicious Life blog. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. I try to encourage Leading with Intention at my blog of this name. As a breast cancer survivor, I found comfort and hope in writing. Poetry flowed through me like a river of healing during my diagnosis and treatment, which I share on my Mostly My Heart Sings blog, that I might offer encouragement and a place of grace and heart for those seeking comfort and hope along their journey.
