heartbeat boomBoomBOOM like a drum

body as perfect as the wind  

a red-tailed hawk on the hunt  

eyes sharp like razors  

talons sharper  

a flash of rabbit   

a glimpse of a field mouse  

life and death among the wild  

and the free  


welcome to your life friend 

if you are reading these words then you are alive 

and that beats the alternative 

it’s marvelous 

breathe in and exhale out 

heartbeat boomBoomBOOM like a drum 

sky above and the earth below 

and you get to think for yourself 

try it sometime
