Welcome to my latest exercise in an attempt to reach my goal of being a prolific writer in 2022. So, in addition to writing 1 short story each week (Because Ray Bradbury said you can’t write 52 bad ones – challenge accepted!) I will be attempting to post an original poem each day in April. This is not going to be easy – I’ve not really written poetry since college. So, these will be thrown together each day and not very edited.

I can hear you now – sucky stories and bad poetry? Sign me up.

Yesterday

Searching the keyboard
googling tech support
waiting on incessant hold
But no one seems to know
where I can find
the Undo key for Time
so that
Yesterday can be Today
once more.
It scares me

Even though
there may be more Todays
and more Tomorrows,
chances are

today
that there are more Yesterdays
than Todays
and more Yesterdays
than Tomorrows
And what did I do
with my ONE wild and precious life?

ars longa, vita brevis
I can hope my art is long
while my life short
memento mori
and I remember I must die

Today is here, Tomorrows are not promised
this afternoon is not even a sure bet
But the Yesterdays,
they are mine
even though I cannot change them
They can still change me.
