Temporary Madness

Bring the rain
Bring the fire
Bring the wind
Bring curses
Bring your bold heart
Bring heroic imagination
I’ll lend you mine
All to life
Crashing out
Not this scribbling
Whining mewling
Sputtering spooling
Gasping, tap dancing
Be Joan de Arc, be Lion heart,
Be Lincoln, be Moses, be Ghandi,
Roar and roar
And fear not
Shall we be mad together?

One thought on “Temporary Madness

  1. Oddly, the image that popped into my head as I read this was a scene from the musical “Man of La Mancha.” Heroic imagination and madness tend to be the words I attribute to it. 🙂
