Tomorrows ~ a poem about HOPE, by Christina Ward

This poem is about hope. About reaching into tomorrow and becoming whatever you want to be. It is about connecting with the world around you and truly feeling inspired and blessed by it. What will your tomorrows bring? Will you embrace it? Here is my newest poem:

Tomorrows

 

Here it is.
A new year rising,
a great orange ball
of fire in the sky,
wearing my name
like a smile.

The door behind me
closes so easily,
the dust slipping away,
falling away like ash.
Grays can be
so deceiving.

This year I will dig
through colors and words
and paint them out
with a new fury.
Unbound and imperfect
I form and take flight.

Possibilities hang,
towels in the wind, clean,
smelling like summer,
tomorrow peeking through them
smiling at me.
Hope is fresh in the trees.

I am a fiddlehead
rising,
unfurling.
Can you see me?
The winds that drive me
are ever-changing.

I am feathers and fury,
green and growing,
Cirrus and stratus
stretching my arms in the sky.
I release and release
and unfold.

  1. You’re good at symbolic things. I kind of didn’t understand your cleaning poem, so I feel like you posted an easier one so we could understand! Thank you!

  2. Yes, The Poet Cleaning is quite a difficult one with many layers. This one is a little more surface-oriented with lots of pleasant images that I hope makes the reader feel hopeful and positive about what tomorrow has in store for them. Thank you for reading.

  3. Oooh. I so enjoyed this, Christina. I can feel the exuberance and freedom in the words. I have a lot of favorite parts, but this one hit me first:
    “This year I will dig
    through colors and words
    and paint them out
    with a new fury.”
    Love that! Well done. ❤

  4. I really love your blog.. Very nice colors & theme.
    Did you create this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m planning to create my very own site and want to know where you
    got this from or what the theme is called. Many thanks!

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get
    four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that
    service? Appreciate it!

  6. Oh gosh! I have removed myself from that option before…go to the post and just unclick the option. I don’t think there is a way that I can do it for you from my end. Hope you have enjoyed the comments…times FOUR is a bit ridiculous though.
