Daily missive for Friday the 30th of June.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Friday the 30th of June.

If this be it
Then it is a life
One step removed
With you
So nearly at my side
Beyond the shallow vale
Divinely tiered
Softly deepening.
A shifting curtain
A brocade veil
Richly woven
With golden thread
Pulled closed
Tightly held
Against the tug of emotion.
So finely crafted
Not a shaft of light
Peeps through
No matter how long
I stare.
Nothing penetrates
So thin a membrane
As to lightly cover
The world between us
With so little
To prevent or restrict
Any movement
Lest it be directed
Right through the weft.
So densely woven
Its true metier
Found proven
With every joust.
Should the strength
Of my conviction
Tear down this
Ghostly partition
This misted shroud
Will surely fall.
The shadow of
Fraught indifference
Will foreshorten
The suffocation
Collapse into nothing
The single step
To the other side
Eternally claimed.
No more a walk
Of separation
But hand in hand
Not bound or tethered
But freely given
In a final heartfelt beat
Of completion.
