No Guaranteed Tomorrows

No Guaranteed Tomorrows

A Poem by Neville

No Guaranteed Tomorrows

 

When tomorrow


Is not


Guaranteed


And our


Yesterdays are


All but gone


Then welcome


To today


My friend ..


Let us embrace


Them


One and all


Yes, every single


Bloomin one ..


Let us celebrate


And mark


The newness


Of now


The sheer and


The utter


Unexploredness


Of it …


Yes, let us do


Precisely that


While still


So very young  


And aching


To be found,


To be touched


That is ..


And so much more


Who knows ..


Today


In the good old


Here and now


Filled


To the very point


Of overflow


Where uncertainty


And awkward


Moments reign


Supreme, pristine


And unsullied


Waiting


To be taken


Like wild fruit ..


Enjoyed


But not forsaken


And to


Glisten in the sun


On the


Highest branches


Of those


Wax leafed trees ..


Now though,


You are so very gone


But yet ..


I still think of you


And often ..


Indeed, I thank thee


Too and truly,


Oh’ so very, very


Much


For all those


Yesterday’s we


Shared


For everything,


In fact


Despite there being


No guaranteed tomorrows ..

I am celebrating with you and your glorious, uplifting, hopeful and grateful words here Neville. My 70th birthday is tomorrow and has been hitting me quite hard. Through your eyes I see it in a new and lovely way. I am truly thankful to you for this one, and it is one I will save to read and read again…

... thank you my dear friend .. appreciated no end :) ... x
Superb Neville - a poem for our troubled times indeed. We are all navigating uncharted waters with uncertainty. Living for the moment is the best approach and getting the most from what we have. We have been fortunate so far with two lockdown grandsons we have been seeing. There is a touch of sadness near the end of your poem which is a reminder of the random cruelty of the pandemic.
Hope you are well yourself.
Cheers, Alan

oh i like it .. keeping it real Nev!
"The utter
Unexploredness" and
"Where uncertainty
And awkward
Moments reign" ... you words inspire me to appreciate the awkwardness and realize all the energy there is in them ... makes those moments exciting ...the turn from the "now" to an appreciation of memories surprised me ... makes this poem rather endearing to me ... holding precious that someone we all have had and lost in one way or another ... what a beautiful, philosophical/spiritual poem .. kept in the real by Neville ..right here at thee Cafe' ... blessed by it sir

The mind continually leaps from the past to the future, often to the negative aspects of both. But in truth, both of theses places are unreal. Only the now truly exists, and yet we seek to avoid it. In this way a lot of life is wasted.
