Daily missive for Friday the 26th of August.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 26th of August.

You are there,
In the space between
Every minute,
Every second
The clock ticks,
As the hand hesitates
A breathless heartbeat
Before moving on.
The wave as it breaks,
Pausing before folding
In on itself,
Foam flying into the air
Defying gravity.
The raised eye brow
Before a question,
When anything is possible.
As the wasp lands
On the outspread hand,
Before it releases
Its sting
And a butterfly
Shakes its wings
In surrender
Of the dying,
That surely comes too soon,
You are there.
The first foot print
In pure white snow,
The gentle breeze
That ruffles my hair
Cooling the fevered brow,
Carrying the
Reckless whisper
On its journey
Through tomorrow.
The sigh of acceptance
In the setting sun,
The meaning
I give to life
Even when it
Is difficult
To comprehend,
You will always
Be there.
In a painting
On the wall,
On the coat stand
In the hall,
In a cupboard
In a drawer,
The shadow
At the door,
You are there.
