Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 27th of September.~by Peter Forster


 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Saturday the 31st of October.
A re-post for Halloween.

Daily missive breaks into the weekend Sunday the 27th of September.

 

The old cottage…

The radiators click,
And the house
Begins to whisper
Ghost stories
That curdle the blood
As the temperature
Drops through the floor.
There is a pitter-patter,
As bitter cold rain
Runs like a plague
Of blind mice
Down the window pain,
And each creak
Of the old floorboards
Is a jagged stab in the dark
As the old place
Stubbornly rebuts
The modern world
And settles in for the night.
Even the wind
Is a restless howl,
The cry of a banshee,
A headless horseman
Coming to claim his due,
But not from me,
As I can name him.
And his idiosyncrasy
Does not expand
Or contract
The security of my
Hold on objective
Reality.
Honestly.
