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 L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing, gardening, photography, or my work. Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. 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. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.
