Even when shadows seem to drown in the uncertainty of life

-even when the sun rolls off the horizon like a coin off a table

-even when the ocean beats and roars at the rocks

Life still has a sweet authenticity

with its nectar nestled in the centre of


that are preserved just for the horn-grabbers

-moments that are waiting…….

for those brimming with sheer audacity
