In a New York Minute

How do you define a moment,
It's just a place in time.
Many things bombard my senses,
Reality from now, a memory from there, and I am taken far away from here,
To justaxpose my mind.

How do we define a moment?
Are they all just something,
That's only in our mind?

Or is it something different,
That we must seek to find?

But no my dear this time is real,
'Cause on my butt your pinch I feel.
You brought back reality my sweet,
Now standing on this New York street.

Turn and run I want to go,
But fair lady you say no.
Because you want to stay and see,
David Letterman, and be on the TV!

oh yes! David Letterman is within my old stompping grounds
my Patrol sector in the theater district, that brings me back some memories, some good and some bad.
Thanks for sharing this treat Walt
Peace be with you

Walt, a memory you've capture and brought so much life to...I too love New York City and the great places to visit and the things to do. Isn't it amazing how our minds capture a certain picture and it remains there waiting to be told. Loved this!

why those thoughts appear I don't know..
Too bad we can't delete a thought we don't
want hangin around anymore, but them thoughts
are always in our hard drive head.
A nice canopy with sign though?
I stay clear of nasty streert.
