A bloody bridge

leading to tomorrow

waits at the pass

I stand before the bridge

in the middle of today

wondering when to cross

and watching others

struggle over the bridge

I sit down for a spot of tea

and decide to wait awhile

“Today ain’t over yet.”

my muses whisper to me

so I sit back and watch

the others in their pursuit

of tomorrow’s gold

I savor the sweet fragrance

of today’s blossoming flowers

and take a sip of tea

and enjoy the moment

to the fullest extent possible.

tomorrow's gold

Drinking tea right now, but thinking marketing five novels. It may be okay to keep an eye on the tea leaves. :D
