The Seasons of Tomorrow

The Seasons of Tomorrow

Tomorrow is a very interesting ( and rather double-edged) word. If we see it positively it can symbolize hope and new beginnings. On the other hand, tomorrow can also mean laziness or procrastination. Ultimately it all boils down to our attitude and how we want to make our tomorrow better or worse.

This haiku poem is in response to Brenda's word prompt TOMORROW. In this poem, I have tried to capture the essence of seasons and how we can use their vagaries to create a better tomorrow.

Spring.

An evening primrose

blooms under the rising moon.

Tomorrow never dies.


Summer.

A few black clouds swirl

in the midst of a heat wave.

Hope it rains tomorrow.


Autumn

Lurid yellow leaves

cuddle a lone wooden bench.

Tomorrow is green.


Winter

After the snowstorm,

hazy lights from distant houses.

Hope to reach tomorrow.

Excellent work, Raviji. Nice and thoughtful response to the word prompt challenge.

You have covered the different seasons, with well expressed haikus. Tomorrow, for me signifies hope, with new possibilities.

Well done. Thank you for sharing.

Good idea to use it for the seasons. Tomorrow never dies... or tomorrow never comes!
