Sunday Scribblings has the prompt 'Moment'.
A Song of the Moment
The heart bursts forth in glorious song,
As the sun, embracing the dawn.
It’s as warm and rich and sweet and strong,
As the inspiration from which it’s drawn.
But the heart and brain are oft at odds
In this song of inflated proportions.
The heart will try to ignore the prods
Of a brain that counsels caution.
There comes a moment of leaden pain,
When wild exuberance is slowed,
When the heart concedes to the brain
And chooses the other road.
That doesn’t mean the dream was wrong
Nor stop the heart from humming it’s song.
