Accidental Poet

This Side of Tomorrow

As I try to perceive

Visions not yet seen

Not wishful thinking

But intuition so keen


And I’m no fortune teller

But I’ve learned to listen within

A voice of reason

Where all awareness begins


Maybe it’s clairvoyance

To know tomorrow today

Even these words I now penned

Spoke to me just yesterday


Future memories

I’m inclined to borrow

When my inner voice speaks

This side of tomorrow

    Very beautiful poem, AP. While writing this comment I realized that at 11pm here in Hawaii I am your yesterday, and you are my tomorrow. So am I writing on this side of tomorrow?

      hmmm, an interesting concept. Reminds me of the Neil Young song, "Old Man". It's actually about Neil's caretaker of his farm, but it makes me think of a young man speaking to his older self. I'm reminded of this with every birthday I have. Thanks for reading and commenting. ; )

      A fine write AP. Though I don't know this Ms Voyance person? Her first name is Clair. Bit like Bill Stickers? And have they prosecuted him yet?! lol.

      • Accidental Poet

        Yes orchidee, Ms. Claire Voyance will on occasion whisper in my ear things that I'll later on wonder where I heard it from. And Bill Stickers? Sorry, don't know him. But I do know Arthur Itis. He's my pain doctor who makes regular house calls. ; )

        'Memories of tomorrow' ... speaks to the concept of 'simultaneous time'. Interesting thoughts, AP!

            • myself and me

              Remind me of the movie "back to the future".
              "Future memories
              Iā€™m inclined to borrow"
              Me too if I may.
              A wonderful poem.

              • Accidental Poet

                I love the "Back to the Future" series of movies. I love how they go back and forth with various things that are related to each other. Like, "Who's president in 1985? Ronald Reagan? The actor?" LOL. ; )
