The Hunt

The challenge of the chase
through a life where jungle chokes,
paints a purpose in rich hues
like amusing masterstrokes.

In the heedless rush for prizes,
whether matter, or of mind,
sacrifices are ignored
and supporters left behind.

When we follow in pursuit,
honing hunting crafts, we thrill
to a tutor’s guidance, leading,
in degrees, towards a skill.

When the hours are compressed
into moments while we strive
with intensity, we know
rainbow chasing is alive.

For the challenge of the chase
may be lust to consummate
but insatiable desire
can’t deny more targets wait.
