Daily missive for Monday the 22nd of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 22nd of January.

A slip of a thing
A shimmer
At twilight
Where Nightjars sing
A tumble in afterthought
As the sun sets
Waiting for a moment
Of awakening
When a smoulder of red light
Cracks a dusty sky
And the chase is on
To catch the meaning
Of a first kiss
Momentary bliss
Breathless in paradise
The song remains
Unfinished
Even the birds
Become hushed
Awaiting a response
To the first flush
Of summer
Where wild orchids grow
Pastel colours
Perfect in backdrop
Sway in collusion
It is no illusion
Or seasonal change
But a shiver
The earth repositioned
Truth requisitioned
A new world order
A different poetry
Strung together
Silently unspoken
For the first time
I remember
The day
The world stood still
For the longest time
Eternity was more
Than just a word
It was a beginning.
