Daily missive for Tuesday the 13th of June.~Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Tuesday the 13th of June.

Hold back the dark
It is a great weight
Heavy with the sorrow
Of dreamers
It billows in thrall
To shadows.
Stars too easily consumed
Flicker
Through ragged holes
In a shark skin sky
Too distant.
Hidden by night
Regret grows bolder
Twisting
The meaning of remorse
Catching a tear
From a broken
Heart string
Sparkling for an instant
Fading in the fall
Of the old moon.
Darkness descending
In stages
Dampening the flame
Snuffing it out
An absurd response
To futile imaginings.
Finality is cyclical
Enterprise
Brings enlightenment
Be watchful
Bear the wait
Fear not the darkening
Enfeebled fingers
Will in time
Withdraw
At the bold insistence
Of the dawn.
