Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 4th of April.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 4th of April.

What of daydreams?
Is it ours to wonder
When and where we like
Even though the world
We inhabit
Is in extremis
And all about
Is set to fall
Can even those poor souls
With lives balanced by
Even the merest
Hint of thread
Dream of love
And better days.
What of dying?
When life
Is fast fading
The balance
Badly tilting,
A body rent with pain
And eaten
By the rapacious
Lust of disease
So blithely unforgiving
Does that mind
Still wander
Into better ways.

Seeking mysteries
Asking questions
Still to be resolved.
In such moments
As worlds collide
In desperate seconds
That stretch into eternity
Do the daydreams die.
Or merely pause,
Does life become
What once was dreamed
In and out of slumber.
And will that
Fractured image
That once was whole,
Into a dream fulfilled.
Will that then end
Our boundless minds
Eternal wanderings,
Or is that circularity
A curse,
As well as our salvation.
We are both here and there,
And in seeking,
We exist.

In truth,
As well as in
The wildest of imaginings.
Become the making
And breaking of us,
As time begets time,
And the days dream on
Into the never ending.
