Triumphant Travels

Spores grow in the damp of heart
Never faced into the rising sun
To bask, to dry and to enjoy
Guilt the thief of possible pleasure
Where doing and done and more
Chase the demon of success
To brag and prove a worthy life
And on our deathbed rue the pursuit
Unobtainable impressive to all
For jealousy and competition
Colour the judgement of some
A rainbow and adventure producing joy
The measure of victory of the journey
Truth of magic and fantasy lived
