Learning from Experience

This week at Imaginary garden with real toads, poets frame queries in "Fashion me a poem", using not more than 100 words, in the style of Emily Dickinson's 'Answer July'

Here's one on the dilemma on which is the best phase of life - past, present or future:

Answer tomorrow - 
What do you hold -
Where lies my smile -
Which way to memory?

Sighed tomorrow -
Are you bold -
Can you laugh every while -
Yester is remembrance already!

I am gone - said yesterday -
What did I teach -
Where is the dream -
Do you wish to deem -
What is it today?

Frowns today –
Is past the leisure I had –
Is future good or bad –
How many more of me(s) to add?

Exclaimed – life explained –
Beautiful was yester –
Upcoming not to pester –
Today a daily fad!

Live everyday – taught experience

  1. This is a very skilled poem, where you have made deep thoughts presentable in a light form.

  2. I like this one, great questions, Vijita (love those dotted letters too, was you mom a romantic writer?). Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, facts and suppositions.

    1. Much delighted to have this comment :) Thanks a lot, glad that you like it :)
