Like a restless wind ...

Secrets of the past

Flit like ghosts through today's thoughts ..
Demanding notice

a portent may appear twice
moving past unseen ...

Stuck in boring ruts ...

With wheels uselessly spinning
Going nowhere fast ...

on a meandrous journey
The vagabond roams ...

Following the fairy path
Through enchanted woods

Unicorns play hide and seek
whilst Gryphons keep watch ...

Whilst Gryphons keep watch
Little people paint flowers
with glowing colors

With glowing colors
stars vie across midnight skies
Which will shine brightest ...?

Which will shine brightest?
Eyes of a woman in love ...
A man's pink bald pate?

is intriguingly sexy ...
Truly beguiling

Are the dancing, leaping flames
In an open fire.

Shadow Vulcan's realm ...

with billowing black forge smoke
Thick as inky fog.

atmospheric pollution
Darkens Earth's future

Like a car's tinted windows ..
Evil black hatred

an insidious madness
Dwells in twisted minds

The minutes tick swiftly past
To sad adulthood

Dig your spurs in and ride tough
'cause time's a wastin' ...!

'Cause time's a wastin'
Don't go a burnin' daylight.
Get along doggies.

Get along doggies
Take courage, you're almost there
The end of the trail

The end of the trail
Is just the beginning of
A new adventure

A new adventure
will fire the heart and spirit
Like an untamed wind ...

Like an untamed wind
Laugher sweeps over you and
Takes your breathe away

Takes your breathe away
In those inspiring moments
Caught in God's rapture
