Daily missive for Monday the 23rd of February.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 23rd of February.

Am I present
Just by virtue
Of my sitting here?
When my mind
Has taken flight.
Disappeared,
As often as it might,
Drifting in and out
Of presence.
Sometimes mindful
Of its task,
Oft times, not,
It slips,
Somewhere other
Than this place
In time and space.
Detached,
A hermit,
Squeezed out, from its
Too small shell.
Left to wander,
Homeless,
Through a plethora
Of memories.
Some grown so vast
They dominate the skyline,
And I am lost
In their shadow.

Finding consolation
In the reflections
From their
Imperfect windows.
Splintered highlights.
I am pulled back,
Brought home,
Unto myself.
A little wiser than before,
But still not done.
As a little
Of the essence
Of every thought
Is lost,
The moment
Over thinking
Has begun.
