Tomorrow

Upon my sunshine when yesterday rains Dwelling in my present uninvited Clueless of today's closing arguments, The joy of tomorrow my new-dawn claims No point whispering to lovelorn woes When I can sweet-talk to portrait of love, And paint my canvas in vibrant brush-strokes Exactly as I wish to see you tomorrow In the domain of yore, yesterdays rile, Today's much better when I see your smile But in your tomorrow is the mystical draw Holding secret promise of heavenly awe If the past takes back to a wintry storm And all I recall is the shrouded form I think of the way the seasons change As the Spring of tomorrow shines your day Yesterday's twilight warns dusk of today Stars of the night don't come out every day But hope is eternal and patience does pay If I wait till tomorrow, I will have my say When glorious daybreak smiles on my sky Vanquishing doubts my dreams fly high Not a hint of the known obstructs my view As the allure of tomorrow I rejoice in you In the domain of yore, yesterdays rile, Today's much better when I see your smile But in your tomorrow is the mystical draw Holding secret promise of heavenly awe November 15, 2018 Placed first in the Tomorrow poetry contest by Edward Ibeh Placed 3rd: Strand select 7 contest by Brian Strand

Today, is a gift. What a wonderful gift indeed, as these words caress the sky- again. In the new day (Tomorrow) they will still be soaring. Congratulations Vijay, on this win. :) Brandy

Quite a philosophical write, Vijay, and our "tomorrows" are often alluring. I especially enjoy the way you personify the times of day -- " twilight warns dusk" and "daybreak smiles." Being "clueless of today's closing arguments" made me smile, for it always seems to be that way. Wishing you success in the contest and a Happy Thanksgiving, my friend. Hugs, Carolyn

"In the domain of yore, yesterdays rile, Today's much better when I see your smile But in your tomorrow is the mystical draw Holding secret promise of heavenly awe" Vijay, this stunning stanza blew me away! I am so happy you chose to end your poem with it also. This gem is going into my Faves my friend! Happy Holidays! : ) xxoo
