Daily missive for Monday the 24th of April~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 24th of April

Is it a day dream
To wonder
Where the time goes
A pipe dream to believe one day
Once upon a wish will all come true.
Hug me a rainbow
Wrap it up in silver paper
Treasure it forever
Carry it in your pocket
Until it all spills out.
Covers your fingers
With multi-coloured sprinkles
See everything you touch
Begin to glow.
A Midas touch for dreamers
The source of golden eggs
To be the beanstalk
A simple boy like Jack
Would think to grow
Is more than a fairy tale
Removing grey from sadness
Is another kind of madness.
When how we feel is reassessed
Reclassified dismissed
By a giant killer
With a nervous disposition
And a golden touch
Who may not have spent
Too much time
Crawling on the ceiling
But has simply guessed
It is not a good place
Tries to put things right
Takes the darkness out of midnight
With a splash of colour
Such a lot from which to choose
A brighter, lighter something
May be yellow
Not too mellow
Anything other
Than a plain old shabby grey
Or the down and dirty
Good for nothing
Sorry to be tearful blues
We all lose.
