For Tomorrow


They wait patiently, sometimes together, sometimes alone, for tomorrow.

For tomorrow will bring a better day. For tomorrow things will change.

They watch each day like a slow moving film strip, a series of grey identical slides revealing indecisiveness, inaction, procrastination.

But that’s okay.

There’s always tomorrow.

  1. great photo and writing, as usual! I loved the line about the slow moving movie strip.

      Thanks Linda. I think I have film stips in my mind because I was recently explaining to my kids how we used to watch them in class instead of movies, it was like a slide show. With each beep, someone was supposed to click the film strip forward one scene and then we’d listen to the text. Of course the person would eventually mess us and the photo no longer in-sync with the text. Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers these?

    Nice. Every writer should be forced to read this once a day!

      You know, I didn’t write it from a writer’s perspective but I love your interpretation. Perhaps it was some of my subconscious seeping in not so subtly.

  3. Ah, yes, there’s always tomorrow. Until there isn’t… (Sorry, that was kind of dark on my part. 😉 )

      That’s why you shouldn’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

  4. Another great pic, Janet, and the poem so appropriate to the photo and poets everywhere 🙂

      Thanks Polly. I am a great procrastinator but I’m working on it.

  5. Sometimes it’s too easy to slip into that endless loop….

      You’re absolutely right.
