Daily missive for Wednesday the 16th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Wednesday the 16th of January.

As the sun goes down
He stands
By the garden gate 
A warm breeze
Playing across the meadow
Gently it swings
Free of encumbrance
Back and forth
As the hinges squeak
A lazy accompaniment
To the process of dreaming
Breathing in the scent of
Cherry blossom
Remembering the days
When as a child
Waiting was forever
Until the time came
For taking action
To keep from sliding
When everything moved
Too quickly
For comprehension
Of a meaning
To the unfolding
Of days
Keeping pace with living
Was a wonder
In itself
Before the age of reason
Slowed things down
Until they stopped.
The gate swings shut
Hard against the frame
All good things
Come together, eventually
As the sun goes down
English country garden
Dreamers
Sadly sigh
As the blind cruelty
Behind the light of yesterday
Leaves the sky
Empty but for shadows.
