Mind’s Master

How do I keep it? That feeling! That moment! That emotion! The instant when….

The chuckles turn to giggles and the belly laugh begins

The elation doused as sweetly sweat is dripping at the gym

The bliss bestowed by card unknown attatched to a bouquet

The cheer that puppeteers our grin when watching children play

The merry mind when music chimes to redirect our mood

The chipper crunch when morsels munched are a favorite food

I want to hold on tight to the light that comes and goes

To be master of a mind that can rouse ten tapping toes
