Taking Flight

Taking Flight

                                                                                                   Knot Work ~ Philip Brent Harris


It’s so late at night, it has become very early morning
Yet, here I lie, brain roiled in riot, with unclean hands.
Creating, too long awake, intent; I should be snoring.
Time it is, passing; I seized uncharted, unnamed lands.

Until a nascent answer lives, I shall not cringe nor beg.
Review, revise, foment, pursue, aim, my will, my plan
And, the universe I will capture, grasp the golden egg,
Expecting no clear help waits for me from kith or clan.

I will compose, when I have an expressive turn of mind,
Paint, draw, write create, into the last hours of the night,
So my preparation may lead to my opportunity in kind.
With such luck, my dreams shall be true and take flight.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
