Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Sun Through Overcast Sky

Winter wears a gloomy sky.
Yesterday came snow.
Today as well we’ll get some, too.
Tomorrow? I don’t know,
But if it dumps a load on us
I will wonder when
We’ll get to feel warm spring love leap
That brings back joy again.

Lake Michigan and Overcast Winter Sky

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. I remember being a part of group in Minnesota who strove to believe that joy wasn’t conditional. It stretched them a bit around February. By April it was all comfort food. “warm spring love leap” makes a good winter mantra… or a poster over the bed.

    1. Winter’s can be hard. The some of the hard ones of my past now frame some of my best memories. That phrase could be heard as a mantra now that you mention it. Thank you, Charley!


  2. Is this about weather? or relationships? or just life?

    I think it could be about all those things.

    I am a bit envious of your snow. We are sinking deeper into mud every day. Not quite as picturesque.

    1. I remember the mud when living in a rural area. It can be annoying. The poem could be about many things, but at least it is about the weather. Thank you, Sarah!


    1. I am glad you like the images. The phrase with love I intended to contrast with the flow of the rest of the poem, partly because I couldn’t find the words to make it flow better and partly because I wanted that part to make the reader pause. Thanks, Jilly!

  3. “We’ll get to feel warm spring love leap”
    Love the way this line made me slow down to enunciate each word, taking in the hopefulness and beauty of it all.
    I’m ready for Spring.

    1. It has been cold here as well, but I am getting used to it. There is nothing like central heating although I do remember a time with a wood stove. Thank you, Pat!


    1. I’ve spent some winters in the southern United States where I could do that as well although most of them have been in the north. Changing seasons have their benefits. Happy new year, Colin!
