Daily missive for Tuesday the 31st of March.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 31st of March.

What is this windswept day
That blows its own trumpet
With such disregard
For the noise it may make.
Affecting its own
Apology in the manner
Of its birth,
With the brightest of skies
And clouds,
That dance and scud
With the grace of
A lover’s waltz,
Sliding over the blue
With such indifference.
What can be made of
The way the world turns,
Spinning about itself,
Ignorant of the effect
Of its dark journey.
Too self absorbed
And bound up in its
Own universal musings,
To notice the minor
Miracle of life,
The day to day
Scramble for survival,
As it charts a celestial course,
Sights set firmly
On the journey to oblivion,
That awaits all things,

Going about its
Daily revolutions,
Whilst lives blaze
And flare
In their brief glory,
Igniting the flame
Of understanding.
So much sought
In so short a time
As to find ways
To change worlds
And manufacture futures
That they may play
No part in.
On such days
It is easy to forget
The impact we make
When the enormity
Of things
Presents itself to us
With the clarity
Of spring and its
Gentle reminders,
Promise of rebirth,
Growth, maturity
And continuity,
When our own small lives
Slip by,
In what we may
Falsely think
As solitary, insignificance.
