Daily missive for Wednesday the 22nd of April.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 22nd of April.

The continuity of loss.

It is in the whispers,
Slipping through the veil,
Screening the heart
From thoughts, lost
In a well of absence.
It waits in the shadow
Of an empty swing.
The cruel silence
In the desperate
Freewheeling burden.
The To and fro
Carried back and forth,
Never at rest.
Lost on a breeze,
As it snorts a mocking
breath,
Raising the heads
Of drooping blooms.
That slough in mute deference
To the heavy drift of
This recurrent, murky stream.

A windswept,
Windless menace,
Clustering in
Motes of lazy dust,
That curl and swirl,
A mindless draft,
That cuts a ghostly trail
Through the progress of passing,
Opening of closing,
Deepening of shallows.
And dwells,
For all eternity,
In the company
Of absence,
The haven of the lost
And the found,
In missing.
