Haiku - Tomorrow

Updated on April 18, 2012

Haiku - Tomorrow


Dr. Darryl Winer


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


Every minute counts

man has no such luxury

to waste fleeting days

Our minds unaware

anguish at understanding


Time wanders heedless

unbounded and unending

at no pace at all

      Good morning (or night where you are) Beyond-

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

      Good Afternoon Persypcacious-

      I truly appreciate your reading my stuff and your comments.

      Heck, your comments almost read like poetry.

      Be well.
