Daily missive for Monday the 7th of May.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Monday the 7th of May.

Deep in wonder
As a swallow dives
Ponder if you will 
The splendour
The measured fall
But there is no free wheeling
Birds are slaves
To their nature
They fly
To live
Until they die
There is romance
To be had
In an empty sky
It is a picture
Already painted
With the mind
As the eye
Freedom wields an artist’s
With every stroke
The choice
Of composition is reduced
Take care
To let wild thoughts
Far and wide
This will be as free
As you can be
Believe me
Wings are clipped
For safety
Lest you drift too far
From the comfort
Of abstraction and stray
Into a stranger’s nightmare.
This is not a lullaby
Do not cry
For happy endings
Close your eyes
Paint a picture
Fill the space with
Colour and believe
In the freedom
Of simplicity
When in a dream
You are a bird
And for a moment
You can fly.
