Daily missive for Friday the 9th of December.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 9th of December.

A tender spot
Easily bruised
When maltreated
It harbours the soul
Giving sound
Protection
Even as it lies neglected.
Nothing covers
The cracks
They grow too wide
And will splinter
If weakness is exploited
Vulnerability exposed.
Have mercy
On the traveller
No journey need be in vain
But there is need for respite
Sanctuary
A warm bed
Restful night.
Have little expectation
Make no demand
Take no reward
Let this be
A time of healing
And fond regard
Let the hurt
Recover slowly
Find the strength
Make a start
Without old wounds
Ripped open
Painful scars
Probed relentlessly
For pleasure,
Instead treasure
Precious moments
Feed the soul
Spare the heart.
