Haiku - Tomorrow

by

Dr. Darryl Winer


Inexorable

each heartbeat marks a moment

time in split seconds


Lives for tomorrow

planning, preparing, waiting

for our destiny


The dawning future

awaits and beckons to us

our time is at hand


Ticks on the grand clock

each second marches forward

there is no escape


Barely outside grasp

the unknown lurks from beyond

tomorrow unfolds


Each moment arrives

oblivious to our want

without our consent


Time, its own master

is unimpressed by man’s will

arrives just in time


Trapped within moments

our lives played out on small stage

prisoners of time


Meaningless minutes

time can loiter as it wants

inexhaustible


Every minute counts

man has no such luxury

to waste fleeting days


Our minds unaware

anguish at understanding

insignificance


Time wanders heedless

unbounded and unending

at no pace at all

      Good Afternoon Persypcacious-

      I truly appreciate your reading my stuff and your comments.

      Heck, your comments almost read like poetry.

      Be well.

      Good morning (or night where you are) Beyond-

      It's the people around us that lighten the "sentence".
