The Lost Thought

by | Poetry, Writing | 0 comments

As I sit down to try to write a stanza or two, or three
I cast my mind to any thoughts that may be noteworthy
But as I sit and think my mind begins to wander
Between ideas big and small of which am I fonder?

The thought of love which always captivates
The romantic and those longing
To know love and give love
To the object of their affection

Or maybe of friendship and the rock they can be
When troubles and fears dismay
Which is worthy, which shall I write
What shall I imprint on my pages here?

Or family and loved ones,
Young and old, present or departed
Maybe about good old uncle Sam
Who could clear a house when he farted.

Maybe just normal everyday life
My job, my hobby or my general musings
I’ve thought of quite a bit now
Now it’s time to start choosing

But by now the hours have past
Its time to rest and I am no way further forward
But I remember a small thought that crossed my mind
What was it? I cant remember!

All I remember now is saying
“I must note that down”
But my thoughts then distracted me for hours
And that memory is no where to be found.

So now instead of something fun,
or romantic or inspiring
My page is marked with all these words
Not saying much, but at least it’s something.

A single thought

A single thought reminds me Of the sin that bound me And of the grace that freed me to live a life of love A single word sustains me When this world discourages me It reminds and affirms in me of my Saviour's love A single act done selflessly reminds me of His mercy...

The Show That Unfolds

As I travel along a lonely passenger In this vehicle filled with many Within and without are two worlds that provide a show as I go on my journey Within I see sitting two seats down from me a mother and her children One on the seat and one on the knee So that they...

Sadness is a state of mind, an emotion, triggered by circumstance Like loss, or hurt Or some other happenstance What makes us sad? Why do we get this way? Can't we just not think and forget What makes us feel this way? But I think to do so Would be the greatest...

The Unnoticed Symphony

Pigments pierce through the dark, royal blue canvass Round and bright they begin to take their form As they rise a symphony begins Creation joining together, uniting in song. The hue's in the blues are much lighter now, and the tempo has picked up The stillness...
