Today

Brenda's such a creative writer. Again, she has come up with another interesting word prompt and there's so much to be done with the word "Today". Today could be the day, become better, get a job, own a company, buy your dream house...it could be the day you have it all...or maybe not. It's entirely up to you to live it as you want it.

I hope you all like my response and I look forward to reading all the beautiful responses to the prompt.

Poem

Today is the day that we look to yesterday as the past.

Today is the that we look to tomorrow as a dream.

I will immerse myself in all that is present today.

For all that has gone cannot return.

And what comes is still unknown, whether it's strife or a smile.

Today, don't drown yourself in the sorrow of the past or uncertainty of the future.

No matter what has happened, today has been given, it has come, it's a new day.

Live one day at a time.

Don't be afraid today.

Choose to become better today.

Live for today

Survive today.

Make today amazing.

Things to do Today

Choose to become better today.

Visit somewhere you've never been today.

Learn words in a new language today.

Try a new food today.

Create a positive environment today.

Surround yourself with people that matter today.

Read a book today.

Call a Friend today.

Plant some flowers today.

Celebrate your small wins today.

Count your blessings today.

Show love and kindness today.

Watch the sunrise today.

Just breathe!

Hi Tobe,

I like your response to Brenda's prompt. You have done it beautifully. Keep it up. As they say, Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today.”

Thanks for sharing

Blessings and Love

Tobe,

These are terrific.

In your first poem, I love this part

"I will immerse myself in all that is present today.

For all that has gone cannot return."

Reminding us to not dwell on the past for it is gone. We need to live in Today.

In your second one you encourage us to become better today.

To do something a bit different. To count our blessings and just breathe in the beauty.

Great work. We cannot count on anything but today, so we should make it great.

I will post a link in the article.

Hi Peace. This is a nice response to Brenda’s prompt and your poem describes “today” well. Good tips on making the most of it too.

Thelma Alberts from Germany on May 03, 2021:

Nice poem. It is good to enjoy our day as tomorrow is not guaranteed for us to come.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on May 03, 2021:

Your attitude of living life to its fullest today is wise advice. Yesterday is gone, and our tomorrows are not assured. We can dream about them, but today is here for us to enjoy.
