Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 19th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 19th of January.

There is beauty
In strange places
A lobelia growing
Through a crack in the pavement
Bougainvillaea climbing
Out of a gutter
Tumbling down from the sky
Purple rain
Without the neon
There is beauty
In different faces
A crooked smile
Hiding the pain of rejection
Rueful jokes to cover
The embarrassment
Of failure
When the bottom falls out
Of the world
There is always
A way to revive
Flagging spirits
With a sideways look
At a problem
From a different angle
Every drop of snake oil
Contains a rainbow.
