Favorite Quote:
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” - Mad Hatter

The light is shining
We're on display
The whistle blows
Nothing's moving
The air is still
Everyone yells
4 beats of silence
And then it starts
The colors spin
The laughing begins
Then you toss
You hold your breath
As the colors fly through the sun
Everything stills
The light pours through you, you are endless
You catch
4 beats have gone by
Since the silence ended
4 beats is a lifetime

The author's comments:
Color Guard is one of my favorite things to do, the feeling as you go on the field and wait to start preforming for a bunch of football fans is amazing. The adrenaline and over all feeling of preforming knowing your going to entertain people is what this poem is about.
