Daily missive for Friday the 3rd of February.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 3rd of February.

Unencumbered by degree
Walking a new path
Little different in aspect
But when viewed
From an alternate perspective
The colours have changed
Dulled by a constant
Drain of sunlight
They are wan and pallid
Vibrancy once riotous
A subdued
Copper toned erosion
More suited to late night
The receding milky crescent
A timid presence
Take it away
Rip the tired wrapping
From this sun bleached
Chocolate box confection
The bloom
Less than inviting
A mildewed image
In need of rescue
Perhaps uprooting
Would be the kindest cut
But not of it
As its recovery
Will be tastefully tended
Whereas my own
Will need a firmer
Immune to the bitter harvest
Of disappointed dreams
To prune dead growth
And rediscover
The seeds of life
That may yet
Lie dormant
In the greenhouse
Still standing in
A garden full of secrets
In the sand box of my soul.
