Chapter 162
Breathless in the Morning


















Who would have thought of staying,

Who would have made this home ?

Who would have taken clay in hand

And sculpted their own throne ?

How many fashion life afresh

When given half the chance,

What portion throw the music out

Then, commence to dance ?


How breathless moments hold the magic,

Poignantly a blackbird sings.

Shades of amber in the sunlight,

Factors in deciding things.


Take the reigns and ride like fury

Hear the thunder of the hooves,

Feel the fear convulse within you,

Once committed play the moves.

Perform as though you have the answers

Authorize to take command,

Let the raging torrents guide you

Do it all as though you've planned.


How breathless moments hold the magic

Reflections in bright golden rays.

Shades of honey glaze the sunset

Factors in deciding days.


Magnificence is such a word

To paint the passing, rushing years

But wonderment, as witnessed,

Has tattooed it's joyous, blinding tears.

The rainbow splendor of the colour

With the richness in it's tone

Engages these sensations which

We embrace as ours alone. 


Satisfaction in the morning

Gauntlets run and mountain's climbed,,

Fortunes made and lost by breakfast

Life's array of gain assigned.

Satisfaction in the morning

Good friends made within this frame,

A life well lived without a mourning

T'were it not from whence we came.
