Daily missive for Thursday the 8th of June.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 8th of June.

Dancing on water
Tip to toe
A magical farrago
Translucent blues
Harmoniously hung
In tandem they fly
A passionate play
Set to time
Certain to end.
The Damselfly
Is everywhere
At least for today
Where will it be
Tomorrow
Will the Dragonfly
Take to the sky
Not such an easy catch
For the Swallow
Who will more easily
Catch the Butterfly.
It is a hierarchy
Where will we be
When it is complete
If it ever is.
Perhaps we are
Under the microscope
A colourful binary
Explosion
Of psycho-active agents
Until the occlusion
And in obstruction
Fall upon ourselves
Cannibalising neighbours
In a desire to survive
In ignorance
Before tumbling
Over the edge
Of the universe
A wasteful specimen
An abortive experiment
In self delusion
Lost to science
And to love.
