To Morrow! To Sorrow! ∞ (poem)

golden omens & tokens
stolen by yester-moments—
dwelling in this hell-thing
called Past, alas all life
withers, withers fastest
when the last thought
thought about is ‘morrow
& sorrows that have long set.
When you die, don’t die
in regret. Be reborn
as the astral egret & fly
across sky, leave gold
trails behind.

Happy December, everyone! ☃

  1. I love the astral egret image! Have you seen them strolling along streets and sidewalks oblivious to the traffic all around them? I took a picture of one on the roof of a car at a Publix lot. I wish I could post it here for you to see. Maybe on facebook ~ I am going to try. Have a lovely December!

      1. I was referring to the poetic imagery, actually. The giphy, though very attractive, does not look an egret. Thanks for letting me know about I have been enjoying the animations on your posts very much! 🌹🌻🌼🌸🌷🌈🌛
