Daily missive for Monday the 8th of October.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 8th of October.

It is too easy to drift,
Wander aimlessly
Walk whilst standing still
Listen to a child sing
A nonsense song
Artlessly playing
With a breath filled balloon
A freestyle
Hand to hand bounce
Dancing to her own tune
The sun a casual observer
A willing participant
In the magic
Of survival
A global event
On the domestic front
Simple pleasures
Finally breaking through
Boredom
Does not exist
As a mind set
It is stateless
A concept
Banished from further enquiries
Into the process
Of curiosity
With or without a cat
There is a litter
Of soft toys
Essential props
In a play date
The backyard
More than a stage
The whole world
Captured in a dress up
Three act revue
The seven ages of man
Look on
Rapt in delight
Children playing
Grandads praying
They will see a graduation
Before the decline
Accelerates
Willing the mind
To remain disciplined
Even on a Sunday.
