An Echo in the Air   1 comment

A wind of chance is blowing in;

a rain of fortune for the few

who heed its call, and who

when handed options will consent

to lend a hand in turning to

the labor, well content.


A mighty thunder cracks its whip;

opportunity unfolds

for those who’ll stand and hold

their place, nor vary from the script.

Fortune favors young nor old

if they be cogs, not stripped.


While yet the trembled air revolves

and casts its bounty fair,

take heart and spend your share

of energy to solve

the questions on the air;

nor tarry,  be resolved.


Once spent, the force of gale reduced

to mutterings, and murmurs,

the nets must be cast further

to gather what’s produced;

so labor with a fervor

once the fury has been loosed.


When all the crop is gathered there,

the bounty put in storage,

while nothing’s left to forage,

take heart, and don’t despair.

The storm you faced with courage,

is an echo in the air.
