Daily missive for Thursday the 26th January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 26th January.

Self absorbed
Ruminants
Chunter over
The fallow field
Day after day
Without fail
Flicking flies away
From their sorry end
Blinking through
The delight of another
Rising sun
And see nothing of its passing.
Heads bowed
A shameless walk
Picked through the footprints
Of yesterday
Wondering not who
Might have made them
Learning little about
Their progress
Missing the boldest
Landmarks
Losing sight of one another
Walking in circles
Ever decreasing.
A pointless
Shrunken perspective
Partially understood
Breaking moments
Barely revealed
Drifting
Out of reach.
Shallowed portals
Dispersed
Narrowed vistas
Never fully recognised
As trodden paths
Gilded with frosted
Dew
Rimed as wistful imagery.
When old ground
Is broken every day
What one wonders
Can lie hidden
More deeply buried
Than a furrow
Beyond the horizon.
