Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 18th of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive breaks into the weekend for Saturday the 18th of January.

What do you see
When I see the dawning
Fingers of sunlight
Melting in shadows
The night sky above me
Becoming a window
The first bird is calling
A welcome to morning
The wind in the treetops
Is whispering love songs
The first hint of summer
In pink blossom falling
The warmth of a parting
In young lovers kissing
What do you see
When something is missing
The space at a table
Where no one is sitting
The tears after midnight
When no one is watching
A bottle of whisky
An old oaken table
A light in a stable
A noose gently swaying
An old soldier praying
New babies crying
As people are dying
Timely reminders
To unite, not divide us
What do you see
When no one is heeding
The words of a warning
What can you teach
When no one is learning
What do you see
When no one is looking
What do you see
Do you see me
As I see you.
