Another audacious day

Morning keeps arriving
with a slap of good intentions —
cheeky red reminder
that fortune favors those
bold enough to get out of bed.

Do I merely follow the sun
on Instagram or
dance cheek to cheek
with others audacious enough
to face another day?

  1. Your audacious quadrille made me smile, Phillip, and that’s such a beautiful mage to illustrate it. I especially enjoyed the opening lines – nothing like a slap in the face to wake you up!

      1. You are tempting me, and no way aI will fall into that trap. “Trapp” in Norwegian is stairs, and aI, in fact, in my imagination, can hear those steps, what you, sir, cannot from my comment. 😊
