Yesterday is history.

I was part of a moment in time.

I wrote a piece of poetry entitled Nature.

I posted my poem on the internet

Now it is a historical piece of poetry.


Today is now.

I am a part of a moment in time.

Tomorrow my actions will be historical

I am writing a piece of poetry on History

I will post this piece of history on the internet.


Tomorrow is the future

I plan to write a piece of poetry

On the subject of the day.

The day after tomorrow my future poem

Will become history.


I will publish my future historical

poem on the world wide web.
