Na/GloPoWriMo #13: Yesterday’s Tomorrow’s News

Traskin's Invasion -  Breaking News
Na/GloPoWriMo #13: Yesterday's Tomorrow's News
by Michael Doyle

Sitting watching the evening news hour
Watching the sun go down as night devours
I fell asleep to the bleat of the LED display
Disrupting a poem meant written yesterday

Having missed my embossed invitation
I make up for today by verbal invocation
That task was to write tomorrow's news
Yet, too much of that consists of morose views

Yesterday's tomorrow will be sunny and bright
Filled with blue skies, fluffy clouds and sunlight
And it was really just amazingly exactly that
Dazzlingly beautiful as a simple matter of fact

In that truth is perhaps the best ever lesson
One of which there is little need for guessing
That however trapped in last year's darkness
The sun comes out to wipe away all that harshness

Regardless of the newsman's bleakest hour
There will always remain a surprise of sunflowers
That catch the gloom off-guard in beauty's walk
And in finding that moment to take a moment to talk

Exchanging smiles in joy's unrequired pleasantry
Instead of wrapping my mind around pointless punditry
That serves to fill life with a thousand fears
When life is better served in random moments to cheer

When these slip through the presence's bleak veil
We are best served if we let them serve us well
Like those times that we risk all in saying hello
And hear a hello back instead of the thud of a deafening wall
