Tomorrow? (a Haiku)

I walk pass today

Remembering yesterday

Where is tomorrow?

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Good write. And Eddie’s song about the insatiable appetites of mankind has made me to stop and think about what really this life’s about. I ended up telling myself, I needa just be content with whatever I want and be thankful for the progress I’ve made.Thanks for forming part of my new year’s resolution.

  2. It seems to me that your haiku speaks of lost opportunities more than anything … superficially about the future, it dwells in a roundabout way on the past. Like the cyclical Mayan calendar, your haiku returns to its origins for another go it. Thank you for sharing.

  3. My mother always said, “Don’t wish your life away.” Although we hope for better times, we don’t know what tomorrow holds…maybe losses of things and people we cherish today! When I do something I particularly enjoy or spend time with those dear to me, I am acutely aware that this may be the last time.

    Your lovely haiku captures that sentiment in just a few words, Ivor. I enjoyed the music too. Have a great day! ❀
