Bring it on

Bring it on

Life a timed test
          anything may happen
or as the case may be
          not :
sprawled on a blanket
          or a towel spread out
on the sand
          the chatter of children
and gulls in the air
          and the sea gently
licking the shore
          such moments of peace

fragments of eternity
          time for this
time for that
          and the leaves
itching to fall
          to lay the boughs bare
a deep depression heading in
          from the Atlantic
autumn sunsets
          and then winter

Bring it on I say
          while there’s breath
in me and love
          bring it on

John Lyons
