CONSECUTIVE THOUGHTS

Folder: 
POESIE HERESY

 

A constellation of consecutive thoughts

                                           echo thru

                                     my brain

 

Deceived by time; laughed at

                                         by fate

                              I resolve

                         to go on

 

the thoughts jump around

                        in the

                    overcrowded

         room of my mind

 

                   forcing some out

 

           taking others in

 

I give you a few thoughts

                                    that I am

                           done with

 

while I work on others

 

      I try to absorb

                whatever

           thoughts I can

 

I sponge up your thoughts

                           and wring them

 

      into a bucket

             where mine recline

 

this intermingling can

               go on and on

 

              thru a 

      couple eternities

 

I’m gone; my thoughts

                        have taken

                               my place

 

What’s left of them

                          becomes

                    the legacy

 

           of my soul

 

I hope you cherish

               and nourish them

 

           back to health

     and we’ll 

             be on our way

 

My thoughts continue

                     to kick

                and shout

 

       dance & sing

            to eternity

I wish I could have written

I wish I could have written with as much talent when I was that age; but alas, no.  But this is certainly a poem to be proud of, a fine accomplishments.
