Ah, the Sphinx-like mysteriousness Of tomorrow. While not promised An invitation to new discoveries and epiphanies Zest for lifers, optimists, idlers all await With breathless anticipation Tomorrow, like death and taxes, is inevitable Auspicious. It's fragrance more potent Than a whiff of sandalwood. It tastes as sweet As honey on your tongue. An hors d'oeuvre To more palatable opportunities to come Nights are filled with dreams And sustained longing for a more Prosperous tomorrow. New challenges Abound, both exciting and daunting For the young and old Yet another day to be grateful for being Alive and rich in spirit. Yet another day To try once more when the battle Of today is lost. Yet another day to feel The soft zephyr on your skin All that tomorrow promises Are forever etched in stone. Birds will sing There will be blooming flowers to marvel at The glorious sun will set in the eventide A galaxy of stars will litter the sky No matter how dire the trials and tribulations No matter how high the summit of adversity No matter how low the spirit; when the good Fight is defeated today, it resumes the next day As Scarlett O'Hara says..."After all, tomorrow is another day" YOUR PERSONAL PERFECT POEM PICK any theme,any form Sponsored by Brian Strand (Winner: 3rd Place) Date written and posted: 10/26/2017
