Yesterday’s tomorrow

Yesterday’s tomorrow


I took my thoughts and stopped to rest awhile

Beside the sea of red. The fields ablaze with poppy red

Akin to the fields of Flanders bled

The lifeforce seeped from kith and kin

What poetry, justice, longings bring


For written down seem just empty words

Voices that the past disturbed

Here I find reflection

Deep beneath heavenly skies

Memories keep.


Days of summer

Youthful innocence

Ran through fields like this

And futures planned

Mown down

Just like this field of seeds

To grow once more

In dreams succeed


To show their suffering

was not in vain

Tears begin to fall

like summer rain



For the fallenPo

◄ Do it and do it now!

I agree that the photograph is well choosen. The soldier marching through the poppy field is an iconic image of the great war.

Your words echo those of yesterday's poets and help keep the memories of those who made the ultimate sacrifice alive.

"If ye break faith with us who die, we shall no sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders fields"

"a pulse in the eternal mind, no less."

Yesterday's Harvest sown
Took the seed of our own
Never to flower and be seen
Except in rows of red on green.

Well M.g in a week of temperatures over 30 and a suntan to die for, it hailed and I was freezing my arse off.

You never know what to wear...

Last week I wore nothing, nothing except a smile.

We have one of the best nudist beaches on the planet, right here next to Sleepy Hollow.

It is huge and flat with golden sands and blue skies and a fine verdant pine forest backdrop.

The two-meter rule is never an issue at Holkham.

I spend many an hour meditating and practicing yoga and Tai chi
on the shoreline watching the sky holding hands with the sea.
Oh and writing poetry.

Po the naked poet.😎

Climate change results in varied weather conditions not only in a week but also in a day. It rains, then sunny, then cloudy, then windy, then cold, then thunderstorms, it might start snowing😂

These days seasons for everything and anything showing up anytime and anywhere 🥰🤩

If we have patience enough to wait
Future always has something for us great
Sufferings and pain are like the thorns of Rose
Unless accepted with thorns what beauty arose

Tears of happiness or tears of sorrows
Emotional rainshowers always brings joy
Lightens the heart of all the burdens it Carries
Making one feeling peaceful and sorrows it buries

What a beautiful poem Po. So much wisdom to pick from. If lessons are learnt properly then nothing can ever keep the success n happiness away.

Great poem, wrong timing...but who cares? I know I don't...perhaps I shouldn't have mentioned it.
