Tomorrow’s Flowers

Swan pond at sunset

Today’s blue skies
Replace yesterday’s storm clouds
There can be no flowers
Without the rain
Today’s teary eyes
Will be replaced with tomorrow’s smiles
Can there be good
Without a little pain?
We only know we are alive
When we feel something
If all we feel is pleasant
Do we really feel at all?
So may tomorrow’s sighs
Turn to next week’s fulfillment
For when you have naught to lose
You have all to gain

          Actually when I read you liked the picture I had forgotten which picture I had used for this and was thinking of the beautiful autumn picture I posted later in the week! Yes, my brain gets fixated and all I can think about is the changing seasons, the bright leaves, the crisp,cool air the, wait, what was I writing about? Who are you? Where am I?….

    I don’t usually get poetry. Unless it’s a limerick – if it’s not a limerick I usually avoid it completely. You can blame my Grade 4 Language Arts teacher for that. However, I got this one! So, either I have gotten smarter since Grade 4 or you are better than my Grade 4 Language Arts teacher. Or maybe both. Thanks, Trent. It’s lovely. :o)

      Thanks! I’m sure it’s that you are smarted than when you were in Grade 4 ;) Some poetry is so buried in metaphor and such that you need a PhD to decipher, but I usually keep the meaning pretty simple…..
