The poetic city: “Until The Day After Forever”

When does it become forever? (Photo by: Reece Burka)

Until The Day After Forever 

On an afternoon worth forgetting,
so hot and bothered by this and that 
of the everyday…
I stumbled into the heart of a flower 
that reminded me of everything 
I needed to remember about my place 
in the totality of all things…
It spoke of beauty, of design, 
and of the mystery of surrender…
And I promised myself that 
if this world is both prequel 
and sequel to an endless 
chain of being, I will carry 
the flower with me from 
one iteration to the next…
Until the day after forever.
