Daily missive for Friday the 3rd of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 3rd of April.

It is not a crossroads,
The road lies,
Barely visible,
Though it may stretch
In both directions,
It is paved with metaphor,
And any truth
That may be derived is
Always at least one step
Out of reach,
Ahead or behind.
It is unlikely
Either path will be
Easily negotiable.
One has gone,
The other is yet to be,
And in the course
Of life

I have found
The travelling
To be incidental
To the journey,
Which in its
Confused, hardly casual,
Meandering,
Has over time,
Seen its share
Of pain and sacrifice.
On a day
When spring has been
Subsumed
By the weight of its
Religiosity,
Awash with significance,
The depth of grey,
And dearth of colour,
Is in keeping
With a general
Lack of purpose.
In this transition
From one
Indivisible moment to another
I may need to
Find another way
And forget the path
Too well trodden.

Perhaps
It is time to strike out
As the mood
Takes me.
Take a chance,
Play with the music,
And enjoy the dance.
Oh…precious thought…
What if… even
This approach
Still comes to nought?
How scary to discover
That no matter what
Road I choose to take
Whatever I see, or try to be
I will always find
My way to the place
I was supposed to be.
