Daily missive for Wednesday the 19th of December.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 19th of December.

We sat, side by side
Your hand resting on mine
You sipped a cocktail
I drank a glass of wine
Watching the sun
As it fell
Bleeding into the sea
Hot flames doused by candlelight
You nibbled my ear
We laughed through the night
Counting the stars
As they shone
Burning holes in the sky
Opening one by one
There was a blink
A meteor flared and was gone
As it fell
Bringing a wish
Home to me
If I could sing you
A lullaby
It would be divine
A song of love
In thrall to a harmony
Its melody entwined
In a cradle of moonbeams
Afloat, you and me
On an old sailing boat
On an indigo sea.
