My first posting here in nearly four months. Can't believe it's been that long. Got too busy with other areas of my life. This is still from near the end of my batch of 2018. Hope to get at least the rest of them on before 2019 is out. Where I lived before I was within a three block walk of the library; now I am about fourteen blocks which is hard to do in rough weather at least. This piece is one for the procrastinator in us.

THE TOMORROW TRAP

c2018 Brian Beecher


Now the frost is on the pumpkin
Summer days have come and gone
Before long a yearly journey
Will end and a new one will dawn

Some unexpected surprises
Causing me to move and pack
Although Iíve been feeling restless
Fell into the tomorrow trap

Some days I am in the mood for trying
Something I would always want to do
And yet I would laugh
My way to the tomorrow trap
And as things piled up I didnít have a clue

Now is the time I need to focus
On what I want to let go of
While decluttering I look for
Ways I can release excess stuff

While more breathing room is needed
As stuff falls into my lap
Clearing could be making room for
Escaping the tomorrow trap

Some days I am in the mood for trying
Something I would always want to do
And yet I would laugh
My way to the tomorrow trap
And as things piled up I didnít have a clue


When this was written I had just learned that I was going to have to move the first time, when the family of my recently deceased landlady decided they were going to sell the house. Moved one more time after that. Hope I am now settled for a couple more years at least. Knew someday it would happen but kept putting off throwing things away and trimming my load. Hence this piece.

You have a simple message here, Beechnut.
Would read better if there was beginning, middle and end.
At the moment it seems to have plenty of middle but no ending and little beginning.
Maybe the beginning could be the end of a previous move (settling in). Then the end could reflect the beginning.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Welcome back. I had noticed you had not posted anything in quite a while.

This is a theme I can relate to. Procrastination is a big problem with me. I put things off for days, weeks, years at a time.

Tomorrow trap is a great phrase for it.


Staying 6 feet away is better than being 6 feet under.
