Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 13th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 13th of January.

There are moments
When the rain
Is a whisper
It can be a torrent
Of abuse
Tearing tender skin
Relentlessly raking
At good earth
Mud slides
Beneath treacherous footfalls
When is it safe
To dance naked
With the rime of
Fallen stardust
Washed from
Mourning eyes
Broken sleep a torn cocoon
Melting in lucidity
What will happen
To the dream state
When reality is a storm
Beating at the heart
Of creation
Listen to the sound it makes
Trying to escape
The rapture
Heavy is the soul
Lost in torment
Will a lightening follow
In the wake
Of this wild tempest
There is no sweetness
In sorrow
Stand in the rain
Let the weight
Slip from your
Slumped shoulders
It has girdled
You in irrationality
Be clear
There is no respite
In passivity
Plant your feet wide
Against the wild wind
Stand tall
It will all blow out
Before the morning comes.
