Yesterday Drifts


yesterday drifts off-screen –

a snowy moon tips

fresh silver contours


This poem was written for Carpe Diem #610, Transformation, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. Hmm I can’t think of any songs about Yesterday.. so here’s Marvin Gaye singing beautifully about snowflakes.

  1. How neat — never heard that Marvin Gaye song before 🙂

    And this is a wonderful mixture of images, Blake — the silver screen, perhaps; white on white on white; and softly sensual too. Very nicely done!

    • Oh thank you – when you see the winter’s first snowfall at night it’s always quite stunning, isn’t it? Even though it’s the same as the year before and the year before that…

      And Marvin Gaye’s song just sets the beauty of that to music, really 🙂

      • And no one wants to be haunted by a ghost accusingly whispering “I heard it through the grapevine” in their ear all night…!! So, I’m sure you’ll get your Motown.
