Daily missive for Tuesday the 8th of November.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Tuesday the 8th of November.

Stay your march.
Hold the moment,
Let it play
Across the shadows.
Rhythmic dappling,
An arpeggio
Of sunbeams
Smoking through
The trees
With their stems of ginger
And burnt sugar.
Catch the rainbow,
Tie it to the ground
Listen to the whistle
Of the wind
Nothing is still.
Time has wings,
Fat pigeons
Rattle dead leaves
Snap dried twigs,
Creaking in flight
As wooden ships
On the water.
Every beginning ends.
Charge forward,
Joust with dreams
And metaphors.
Listen to the answers
Between questions
Waiting to flower.
The cubic root,
The eternal quest.
Ask for truth
Know its worth.
Nurture the present
Be an honoured guest
In the halls of
Do this
For no reward
And enlightenment
Will follow.
