Tomorrow

So quickly

Becomes yesterday


Yesterday

So quickly

Recedes into the distance

Becomes what we ponder

As the past


Fleeting

Fading

Into history


Often

And always in vain

We attempt to place a succession of tomorrows

Into some reality

As if it could be done


Yesterday

Had its happenings

Tomorrow has not happened


Today

Is the reality

The treasure we should seize

Savor

Relish


Second by second

Moment by moment

Hour by hour


carpe diem
