NaPoWriMo / GloPoWriMo 2018 – Day 17 – “Today Seen Through The Eyes Of Tomorrow” by David Ellis

Hey there everyone.

I decided to go off-prompt rather than use the NaPoWriMo HQ prompt today, as I do not have any amusing anecdotes that immediately spring to mind (and I’m pretty sure I have buried the more embarrassing ones, primarily due to being British and my stiff upper lip).

I therefore opted to go with the prompt of invention over at Poets United instead:-

Poets United Midweek Motif ~ Invention

Hope you enjoy it, as always 🙂

“Today Seen Through The Eyes Of Tomorrow” by David Ellis

The foundation of invention is innovation

There’s no logic in laws without cause and effect

Knowledge is attained through experiences shared

Today seen through the eyes of tomorrow is the goal

 

Out of chaos comes a sense of purpose

Intuition communicates through the archaeology of our bones

Resourcefulness succeeds where there are no clear paths

Events make the most sense when altering our perceptions of them

 

Watching as cultural society continually reinvents itself

Exercises in ingenuity defy all possible imagination

Absolute truths from the appliance of science

The spirit of new adventures never taken for granted

 

In the days of conventional, strive to be exceptional, inspirational

Make your art distinctive, let the light that permeates shine through

Your ideas have the most worth when fused with your driven passions

Let your dreams run wild, producing the changes your life deserves

 

Still want more? Well, how about some other inventive poetry from the NaPoWriMo community, as they share their Day 17 entries? Splendid, splendid!
