I've been struggling with the idea of later

and how there comes a time
when you have to stop putting it off and say,

this is later.
This is the time you've always said there would be
for whatever has to happen now.

At first it felt sad.
But today I came back to poetry
and knew I should have abandoned the idea of later
a long time ago.


  1. Good for you. Realization is a wonderful thing.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. you never really left poetry
    your words were just being cozy little homebodies
    for a bit
    enjoying a bit of scrabble
    and hide and seek
    they get like that
    from time to time

  3. There you are!

    Aloha from Waikiki :)

  4. Very nice. Poetry has been waiting inside you.
