The Proof of Magellan

Grey Scale

This feeling, of unease

of a trick missed and a gamble lost

of stuttering motion

of the leading hand drawn back

of memory, burned once twice shy

and fear’s cold embrace

and the emptiness of the unknown.

This feeling, of expectation

of opportunity grasped

of glimmering eyes, the rush in the leap

of the glory of the hunt

and fear’s adrenaline

of unknowing wonder.

This feeling, of starting something new.
