Daily missive for Friday the 9th of February~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 9th of February

The wind cries
A lonely sound
Echoing through 
Deep canyons
Seared into the earth
Deeply charred
Open scarred reminders
Of the natural order
Nothing more powerful
Has been found
To replace
The relentless
Pace of change
Everyday is charged
With new vigour
The wind howls
Not in rage
But inevitability
Tearing at old wounds
Opening new ones
Blindly goes the way
Of all things
Endless is the blessing
Of ignorance
When all things
Remain unknown
Listen with me
There is no favour here
But the wind whistles
Through the avenues
Cavorts in dust bowls
Whimpers limply
In sleepy hollows
Rustles languorously
Through luscious
Weeping willows
Cries out alone
In the wildest of nights
And I believe
It cries for you.
