On the record

Record

Old box files

a tale of someone’s life

diaries , holding memories from long ago

photos of holidays from far off places

sitting next to journals of journeys gone by

memories frozen in a moment

time captured in an object

the cv…course of life ?…doesn’t come close

as you open the lid, and moments come flooding back

Golden Moments

In another place, whilst I eat my tea

Our brave athletes are going for victory

flying round tracks and fields of all kind

focused on goals in body and mind

Prepared for the task – with targets in hand

strategies made – and races planned

Zeus watches on as the events unfold

as Britain goes hunting for Bronze, Silver or Gold

And as world meets in Rio to follow the race

The athletes are focused on the first, second, third place

So as flame it burns – give the athletes a cheer

as medals are won and old records – disappear.

Capturing that star

In response to Reach

 

Ready Team ? its time for your moment in the sun.

Everyone is cheering you on – the prize is in sight

As you enter the arena – its fever pitch as

Cohorts of fans – push you towards your ultimate goal

Handling that precious medal of Bronze, Silver or Gold

 

(Time to capture that star!)

Maybe…

Maybe

The chance to gain the prize

you’ve done the training

improved your stats

gathered composures

and pinpointed your faults

 

The prize is in your reach

fame and fortune a short distance away

your competition studied

its just you and that distance

in your way to the gold

 

will you make it

maybe….
