Daily missive for Friday the 26th of May.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 26th of May.

Open yourself
Blossom wisely
Listen more closely
Between the blackbird’s call
The unmusical clatter
Of a bamboo wind chime
The barking dog
Tied to a pole
In a neighbours garden
Fretting in the sun
Abandoned
Until the working day is done
Come closer
Beyond the sound
Of the honey bee
Humming softly
Warming to its task
Burrowing deeply
Ignoring the
Protestations of a butterfly
An unfurled
Proboscis trying to steal
Its treasure away
The stand-off between
The spider and the fly
The splutter of
A ply wood bi-plane
A sky boat song
A clutterbuck history
Breaking the spell
When there is
No one to tell
Open yourself
To the whisper
Of a promise
The property
Of change
Even in silence
There is hope
If you listen
Beneath the chatter
Of girls and boys
Somewhere between
A laugh and a scream
A mid-may dream
There is a truth
At the heart of noise.
