quest for beauty

he crept through the chilly september dawn
with an air of suspicion and mortal sin
the streets mourned their emptiness
waiting for the sun and early birds
attempting feats of greatness
the silent highway whispered freedom
beckoning him with promises
of love and death and everything between
the world stayed still for one complete moment
and he strolled away from the sunrise
at ease for once with the melody
that tore through his thoughts
so he began the lifetime quest for beauty
