Daily missive breaks into New Year for Monday the 31st of December~ Time to remember~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into New Year for Monday the 31st of December
Time to remember

Unlock
A memory
Allow the essential essence
Of my existence
To bleed into dark corridors
Wash into empty rooms
Push against closed doors
Uncover blackened windows
Pour in stately progress
Through cobwebbed halls
Unstoppable
A tidal symphony of
Ambient delight
Polishing ornate finials
With several movements
Numbered
Out of sequence
Ringing rusty bells
Filling in the cracks
Recalling simple things
One note at a time
On a sliding scale
Recomposing
An existential melody
Blowing up a storm
To flush out the system
Scour the barnacle encrusted
Surfaces clean
Exfoliate the
Remains of old whispers
Perhaps they are not yet dead
But only sleeping
Smooth the way
For a slow dance
With a silent partner
No need for words
A warm glow
Of acceptance
A recognition of truth
An appreciation
That a soft kiss
From a lovers lips
Would be but enough
To unlock
A memory.
