Daily missive for Friday the 4th of August.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 4th of August.

Angry clouds hunt
In packs
Scudding low
Snapping at tree tops
Grey shark underbellies
Ready to burst
Brush over
Sharp hills.
Herring Gulls
Crowd overhead
Circling Vultures
A pandemonium
Of contempt
For convention
Fifty miles inshore
Chasing fast food
Leftovers and upturned bins
Wind tossed salvage
From a landfill.
Beneath it all
Footsloggers
Hurry home
To a glass of wine
Before the sky falls.
A storm is coming
On a straw hat day
Unpredictable weather
Flood warnings
Lightning flash
Gale force nine
Landslip mud
Shale and slurry
From an old tin mine
Soil the dream
Of midsummer
And wash a taste
Of the good life
Away.
