A Life in the Day of

linear.jpg

Eyes flutter open, seeing with light afresh

Unveiling visions

Sparkling with early dew

 

Pure and clean, untainted by the day to come

Crisp, sharp air

Nature’s heady brew

 

Hitting mid morning with spring-heeled leap

The child has no pride

He’s just along for the ride

 

Lessons learned and hurdles jumped

That first real feeling

Of battling the tide

 

The Mid-day sun brings heat and passion’s flame

Playing along with the game

And those first pangs of shame

 

Chasing memories while the energy is fresh

Marking your territory

And staking your claim

 

Stealing smiles across the afternoon

As the day peaks

And time inexorably leaks

 

Accelerating forward

Turning minutes to hours, hours to days

And days into weeks

 

Then eventide to bask in the glow

Make sense of the day

Take pride in your stock

 

Remembering the air, the light

The heat of the fight

Looking back to when you walked that walk

 

As the shadows take over

And the darkness grows

That’s when true nature shows

 

A legacy of what we shared

As the light fades

And the night forces the day to a close
