Daily missive for Friday the 8th of November.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Friday the 8th of November.

Throw me a line
Let it be an anchor
To arrest the drift
But ghostlike
Perhaps you see me
As a shifting shadow
On the water
Dancing in and out
Of a moonbeam
A fine silhouette
Barely visible
Against the night sky
Perhaps I am no more
Than imagination
A shiver of wind
Lifting hairs
On the nape of your neck
Substantiality once defined
Itself as mine
Before the storm of ages
Came to steal it away
In its cruel disguise
Invisibility
More than a cloak
Less than you believe
As it removes so much
Of what once was
The space it leaves
Largely inadequate
Is of passing interest only
To a kindred spirit
Listening to whispers
Prompted
By the wonder of
A memory.
