Yesterday… (weekly prompt)


Its fronds reach out to all of us

But yet we do not feel

Its attempts to qualify our daily life

Left alone – is it too weak to be real?


The way it dictates every living second

The here, the now, our present

Even though its time has long since passed

Its lessons are there; we are hesitant


It’s in the past, we must move forwards

For the past is nowhere to live

But still its tentacles, invisible to sight

Harness a power – freedom, they will not give


It’s a word, a title, a name, a thing

But does it really exist?

This force so strong it pulls our path

Yesterday.  Is it real or just a myth?

About Jade Reyner

I am on a huge writing journey. I started my first novel just over two years ago and I am now proud to say that I have written nearly three. My dream is to become a published author and I am now working very hard, along with an editor, to accomplish that goal. Other than writing I love my family, cats and chocolate! Feel free to say Hi! :-)

  1. Interesting question at the end. Time might be an illusion itself, designed by the human need to understand things.

  2. Lovely, Jade, and I love the question at the end. Too often we assume our “yesterday” was as real as we imagined it, leading us to sometimes repeat the mistakes of yesterday.
