Daily missive for Monday the 20th of May.~by Peter Foster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 20th of May.

How does it sit
What is the slant
Nothing quite happens
Before it is past
Shadows are secrets
Under exposure
Darkness a swallow
Into the belly of a whale
The sun is life
The sparkle in the eye
Of a newborn
The harshest glare
An unblinking stare
Blindingly oblivious
To the destruction
In its gaze
Caught in two minds
Torn between
Before and after
What is
When what could be
Is never sure
Of an answer
The rise and fall
So much more than
Movement
Stillness an obstacle
To some
A completion to others
In…out
Up…down
The meaning of a spectrum
Is more than an exercise
In colour coding
Where do we sit
When there is nowhere
Left to stand
For something other
Than to act
In response
To each preceding
Action
Even when the pretext
Makes no sense.
