Daily missive for Friday the 24th of June~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 24th of June

How, when I feel such
An ache
For your absence
I still see romance
Slipping between
The shadows,
Floating in misty air
So heavy with humidity
It shimmers with opportunity,
The Ivy shivers
With expectation
As the wise old willow
Cannot still
Its excitable weeping.
The sturm und drang
Of emotion
Brings me to my knees
In tribute,
Even in extremis.
I am in awe
Of your presence,
The magic of you
Bringing the world
To life
Sharpening the senses
To the vaguest
Aspect of your continuance.
Even in the
Deepest recess
Of a damaged heart
The fragrance of
Relaxes the window
To my soul
And I fall into the
Saving grace
Of your warm embrace.
In sleep you are
Feeding my spirit.
In waking I see you
As a reflection
Of the growth
Of hope.
