Memory’s Delight

image

Once
Overly eager feet
Today, step up
To plate, carefully ~
Zest continues running
Full tilt, eagerly spilling
Dashing forward impulsively
Heeding memories’
allures

Body
However
Is another matter
slowed by marauding
Time’s thief game fully
Attempting to match
Pace for pace
Stride
for
stride

Beyond childhood’s
Doorways, thresholds
Lie views that’d enchanted
Childish eyes beyond
Wildest imagination
Impatiently now
Heart in cahoots
With mind, coerces
Slowed body
To keep time

And then
huffing, puffing
Pinnacle
Reached
Mind – exhilarated
Heart – palpitating
Body – beaten
NOT
Bowed
Ear to ear
Beaming!
~
