What Is Tomorrow?

We all have them,

Every day there is a new one,

A new one ahead of us.

Will we know what is coming,

What is coming from them?

We know what’s behind us

Created in our memories,

We hope there are so many

So many yet to come to us,

But we just do not know,

All we can ask is,

What is tomorrow?

    Good write Gold.
    I dunno. It never gets to 'tomorrow'. When it gets here, it's 'today'!
    You found that elusive 'tomorrow'? It's the day before the next day - or summat like that, as is your saying.
    I should have turned up 'tomorrow' in 1066. I would never have arrived. lol.

    • Goldfinch60

      Tomorrow is that place we always hope to get to Orchi.


    • orchidee

      Also - is 'the morrow' the same as 'tomorrow'? (Do shut up now Orchi. You're rambling. lol)

      Ah, what is tomorrow, I used to believe as a child tomorrow was sitting above the tree's
      I used to ask my mum all the time. Now as an adult I made my own mind up it's a memory waiting to happen of we are lucky enough. Gorgeous Andy. You always bring nostalgia to me.

      • Goldfinch60

        Thank you Teddy.

        "a memory waiting to happen" - what a wonderful phrase, there must be a poem there.


        • Teddy.15

          I gladly give it to you dear Andy I hope it inspires X

          Tomorrow, sometimes difficult to get to, but easy to leave.
          Enjoy the green today it's going to be a good un.

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you, but we must believe that we will reach all our tomorrows.


          • dusk arising

            Tomorrow is an opportunity.

          • L. B. Mek

            grappling with yesterday's
            and fearing of tomorrow's
            we oft, neglect
            that most important: Now
            which holds the promise
            to our next blessed day, of solace...
            a wonderfully life affirming 'just a thought', Andy
            thanks for sharing

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Mek, we must look forward to many tomorrows.


            • AuburnScribbler

              A wonderfully asked question here Andy.

              In my opinion, I think that tomorrow, is today, just with a bit more knowledge, and I hope, a bit more confidence.

              Bravo, and I hope that all is well.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thank you Ben, each new day brings us new knowledge and there will be many of them to come.

                Yes I am fine Ben, I hope all is well with you also.


              • Doggerel Dave

                Yea - it's the one coming up, Andy..... But you must always question even the most commonplace of assumptions which are taken for granted by the majority of the populace and collectively known as 'common sense'.
                In 'Stralia they always ask the question "does it pass the pub test?"
                Got any pubs left in jolly old England, Andy?

                • Goldfinch60

                  True Dave, there will be many more of them to come.

                  There are some pubs left, a friend and I decided we would have a pint after playing croquet last Friday morning - we couldn't get in the flaming car park, totally rammed. That pint will come one day though.


                • myself and me

                  Good question with no answer.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    True mandm, we will see tomorrow though what that answer may be.


                  • Neville

                    ... I got here early in the hope of not being too late for yesterday ... which of course, was the day before that's tomorrow ...

                    now ya got me thinking .. must be having a Mr. O moment ............. N

                      "Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday".
