The future

Writer’s Island prompt Vision of the Future

Vision of the Future

The vision of the future

Is blurred

No hard edges

And it is not a place

About which one can feel secure

Dire predictions

Are made daily

On the news

But who is to say for sure

Follow the thread

Rack and ruin

I never hear anyone

Say anything positive

Nothing to hang your hat on

For all practical purposes

Life on this planet is over

Dead and gone

Make do with less

Nothing to hope for

No dreams to dream

And yet life seems to go on

One day at a time

After all we are yesterday’s

Vision of the future


Sunday Scribbling Prompt #273  Give


The GiftThe Gift

Too often we think of “give”

As “give” to me

“Give” me your hand

“Give me your promise

“give” me your heart

How close “me ” follows “give”


Maybe better

We allow “me” to lead the way

Change the question

What can I give

Let me “give” to “you”
