Daily missive for Thursday the 21st of March~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Thursday the 21st of March

Take my hand
I am a stranger even to myself
Skin is skin
How different it is to be the same
After a hot shower
Softly smelling
As sweet as cucumber
We are separate
We are one together in a garden
Of remembrance
Everybody leaves but the departed
Even as the essence of a memory
Fills the soul
Let it expand
Take my hand
There is communion
A brief exchange
A fragile union
When for a moment we are of one mind
We are broken in the same way
Skin is skin
How different we all are
When so many things
Bind us together
We could fly
Birds of a feather
On the wing in close formation
I remember the soft timbre
Of her voice
The fine hairs
On the nape of her neck
The freckle
Flickering on her eyelid
Hold my hand
Bleed into the soil
Where we are one together
One day
When we remember
How broken we are
And still we breathe
There will be a garden
Set aside for bleeding
