Daily missive for Wednesday the 9th of January.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 9th of January.

We have strayed, far
From the campfire
In search of each other
Escape consequence
Or find the peace
To contemplate the future
Hold on tight to the past
What is progress
When we pitch up
Beyond the farthest arrow
Circle the wagons
Tie up the horses
And build up our defences
How loud is the voice
Of discontent
That can be heard
Without believing it is an echo
Of temptation
The devil finds flaw
In minor details
Without interference
Perhaps a grand plan
Would emerge
To be signed off
By all and sundry
For too long
Our feet have been stuck
In the mud
Sinking beneath the weight
Of history
Holding on to the memory
Of betrayal
To escape the consequence
Of the flight
We carry the serpent
It lies hidden
In our baggage
Everywhere we go
Until we strip it all away
Tear down the walls
Flood the empty halls
With light
Build a different structure
For the soul
To meet our needs
Recognise our proximity
As lovers,
Friends and neighbours
Sheltered beneath
The same family tree
You and me.
