a watery sonic boom

A sonic boom
underneath the
water of our
lives
it’s ripples
outward
expand our intelligence
in equal portions
and so we decide
that our brains
are not devolving
revolving
into a mushy
past
but moving
forward
evolving
into a clearer
future
skip
the present
absorbed
inside
those
ripples
let’s not live
in the moment
nor in the past
let our faces
grow golden
as the sun rises
let our backs
reflect the red
of setting sun
we have rode
out that watery
sonic boom
surfed the wave
that washed
over our past
enveloped
today
sent us
rushing towards
tomorrow

    I love that concept of rushing towards tomorrow, that today we embrace but tomorrow holds untold wonders and we long to be there…..like the expectation of a holiday to a place you have longed to go.

      I still am afraid to think about the future. I would like to think that the future holds untold wonders; but . . .
      I’m slowly getting past the past, trying to understand today, but tomorrow is too scary.
      Prompts and poems allow me to “dream” about how things might be without thinking about my future specifically.
      As for longing to go: Patagonia since I was a child. Still mostly wild, though some development like spas, hotels, and tourism. Not quite the Patagonia of my childhood.
