Poems: “Ode to this moment” by Pablo Neruda


“Ode to the moment”

This moment

as smooth

as a board,

and fresh,

this hour,

this day

as clean

as an untouched glass

–not a single


from the past:

we touch the moment

with our fingers,

we cut it

to size,

we direct

its blooming.

It’s living,

it’s alive:

it brings nothing from yesterday that can’t be redeemed,

nothing from the lost past.

—Pablo Neruda
