On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

"It's difficult to throw Aquarians for a loop - they're generally on top of things."

to be on top of something (informal) - to be able to control a situation or deal with it (CALD)
"The world was a fantastic, marvelous, awesome place, Rose decided."

    Technologies can help being on top of things by their several applications; for instance, by satellite imagery, some countries were enabled to be on top of monitoring how their rain forests within their borders were shrinking by farming and logging.
    Certainly, this way was going to be more effective than simply keeping a sentry on watch duty on top of a towering tree, although this would be another way of being on top of something.
