Daily missive for Tuesday the 5th of April.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 5th of April.

Will come.
Inactivity is no respite
Or surrender.
The way you feel
The rate your heart beats
And how to
Look upon the
That comes your way.
Whatever you think,
No two days
Will be repeated.
Not every day will
Stretch to equal length.
The temperature may be
Broadly similar,
With an outlook
Set from mild to Fair,
The occasional glimpse of
A milky sun
And a hurry home
Of scattered showers.
But these incidentals
Are wrongly hailed
As much
Of a muchness
And no indicator
Of real difference
Or the mundanity
Of simple similarity.
We never hear the love
Bird sing
The same love song.
No two squirrels
Steal a nut
From the floor
Of a bird table
With quite the
Same timorous
Or flamboyant
Manual dexterity.
The mating game
Of Robin and his partner
Moves from
Playful strut
To setting up house
And responsible parenting
In the space of a few short days,
As you come to realise
That every cliché
Was an original saying,
Once upon a time.
And you can smile
And laugh
All through yesterday,
Living life
As if the day
Would be your last,
Then overnight,
The internal
Body clock
Is stopped, re-set,
The world
Is rearranged,
And you sleep,
Barely lifted up
To kiss the sky,
I don’t know why,
Nothing has changed,
And yet
We surely know has.
