Yesterday

May 15, 2017

Teck, in Remembrance

When I think
Of all the things
That have disappeared
Gone away
Happened yesterday
My heart joins forces
With my soul
To help me understand
Why it all had to go away
Yesterday.

Beginning A New Year

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.

What Has Happened

December 1, 2016

What has happened
To the day, the month
And the year?

It has been here
Now gone on its way
Becoming nothing more
Than yesterday.

Seeking to see tomorrow
I lost sight of today
Where I had hoped to live
Everyday.

Realizing it only
When I looked back
To see yesterday passing
From tomorrow right on by
Thru me today.

When I Think About It

When I think about it
I can’t stay
In the realm of
Yesterday.

Move away, move away
From the thoughts, the times
Lived yesterday
Yesterday.

Let me take the steps needed
To go in the direction
Necessary and okay
Today, tomorrow and yesterday.

Have You Seen Optimistic?

December 4, 2014

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Have you seen optimistic?
Where, oh where could she be?
At one time she was here
Right beside of me.

She kept me company
Laughed and made me see
The happy, caring way
Just what I need.

But yesterday
She left, she left me
Have you seen optimistic?
If you do, please tell me.

The Idea Came

February 4, 2014

The idea came
I think yesterday
All laden in glory, no more can I say.

The idea came
I don’t know from where
Out of the blue it was just was there.

The idea came
Quietly
No bolt of thunder or shouts of ecstasy.

So I must get busy, work away
And make it real
This idea that came to me yesterday.
