“Today, Tomorrow” by Nicole Heinz

The day begins,

the sun is set

Yellow rays filtering

through a blue horizon

Thoughts align and don’t

to make moments

appear and disappear

Hello turns to goodbye

Afternoon headed towards

evening tables and soon-enough

night stars light the windows

All is done

All has passed, all that can

or will, today

Yet, before that time encroaches

we had that could be, what if

Why did that happen, maybe tomorrow

we’ll know the answer

Rising and creeping through our minds

“Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality.” Edgar Allan Poe
