Lion in Water

I am a lion in the water A bird struggling in the mud I'm a horse trapped in the stall A spider's prelude before the web A wolf pacing before the hunt A snail climbing Everest I am the energy that supersedes the deed I am the champion of its release I am the fastest The strongest The most industrious Of all around me For I know the secret of hesitation The powerful build-up of intention I am the moment of singular focus The third eye that can see beyond the now I am the goal I am the athlete To make it happen In the moment TOTIS VIRIBUS October 15, 2020 Games - Mental or Physical Poetry Sponsored by William Kekaula
