Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of February.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 10th of February.

It is heavenly,
With you sleeping
At my side,
Pain free.
Your pale skin
Cool to the touch,
Slow and easy,
The bed an oasis
Of peace and tranquillity.
Even a car alarm
Barely breaks the spell.
I glance toward
The window,
The orchid flowering
On the dressing table,
A broad leaf,
Waxen green,
Resting across your
Old teddy’s tummy
And through the foliage
The sky is on fire.
Streaks of red,
Pink and gold,
Turner’s pallet,
Bleeding through
The blue.
It is a moment
To remember,
A small window
Of hope
And I lean across
To kiss your head.
For a small piece of heaven
On a sunny day.
