Are You Afraid of Tomorrow?




I am afraid of tomorrow, of what it might bring

Of a hunger for things unseen, yet unknown

A feeling that something interferes with your thoughts, your plans

That something watches, waiting for you to mess up

Take the wrong road.

Spend too much time on things that go nowhere.

There are days when the world around you

Feels as though it is made of treacle

Each step you take, your feet gather more of the sticky stuff

Until you feel as if you are wearing lead boots.

Tomorrow comes; the sun shines through your window

Birdsong filters through your sleeping mind.

Today you believe in angels

You put the lead boots in the cupboard

Open the window and let the new day in

Let the soft summer breeze carry yesterday’s dark thoughts away…

I am running through the universe

Skipping over rainbows, swinging from the stars

Swimming in the Milky Way.

Going around in circles in our spiral Galaxy

Where my life once began.

I am flung into the Cosmos where life is still growing

Worlds beginning anew.

Should I choose to live again,

Earth would still be my first call…


Poem and Artwork: “A Happy Accident” by Anita Dawes



Look what turned up the other day, I just had to capture it…

Rainbows are supposed to be lucky, aren’t they?

Well, I certainly hope so, as there hasn’t been much of it around lately…
