Daily missive for Monday the 5th of June.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 5th of June.

Pin me down
Speared through
All the way
Stuck in a glass case
For all to see
Disappearance is a goal
Too readily achieved
I am less a butterfly
The unfolded wings too gaudy
To go unseen
More a forest sprite
Inquisitive and thirsty
For knowledge
Although tentative
Fearful of the wider world
Hiding in shadows
Protected by trees
Beneath a leafy canopy
Tickling an ear lobe
Tapping a shoulder
Slipping in and out
Of memory
Sheltering from dark skies
Waiting for rainbows
Seeking connectivity
For a moment
Peering out from beneath
A pile of books
With a secret smile
And a question
Before the intimacy
Of recognition
Breeds its own discomfort
Sliding into trouble
Is an exhibition
Better avoided
Innocence is no easy virtue
Narcissism is a harsher
Word to negotiate
Honesty a pale excuse
Pin me down
Exposure whilst painful
May bring
A reapers reward
In the longer term
Take aim and spear me
If you can.
