Daily missive for Monday the 25th of March.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 25th of March.

Not a breath
Of a whisper
No wind to speak of
Anything meaningful
Barely a light in the sky
To see by
Candles not an option
In a smoke-free world
No telltale sign
Of an angels wing
Or the silence
Of an owl in flight
An oppressive night
Of indifference
With little acknowledgement
From the moon
Of my existence
There is no telling
Of an age-old story
In the shadow
On the wall
It is not dancing
Only loitering
With intent
To disappear with morning
Inspiration
Is no stranger
To the danger
Of misuse
It is in league
Hand and glove
With the stench
Of perspiration
In the deeply down dig
For the truth
Of conviction
Is there a muse
Buried beneath a layer
Of hopeless
Self-delusion
Is it open to abuse
What is the protocol
Is there anything left
To call upon
In the dark hours
Even as birds sing
Someone fires a gun
There is a shadow in the sun.
